Any reinforcement topology is possible with our advanced modeller and calculation core. Reinforcements can be grouped and optimized to achieve maximum safety, even in discontinuity regions. Changes are performed in seconds allowing iterative design and thus achieving maximum economy.
No more struggling to deliver complex and safe beam designs, including construction stages, details, openings! IDEA StatiCa Concrete checks all of the above and even covers more demanding tasks like lateral stability and shear resistance of the interface between concrete elements cast at different construction phases.
IDEA StatiCa Concrete generates and compiles a single report containing all ultimate and serviceability state checks (including interactions and fire resistance checks) into fully scalable and customizable reports. You can then export it as PDF or docx files for further processing.
The concrete cross-section response is calculated internally, taking into account the full interaction of axial force and moments in any construction stage. The user can display and manipulate stress-strain diagrams. He can then export these diagrams in DXF, image files or excel tables for futher processing
This functionality allows for the accurate determination of stress development at any construction stage. Our advanced time-dependent analysis (TDA) enables the determination of nonlinear creep effect easily. The designer can exploit this functionality to produce economic designs safely.
Construction stage determination can be a real pain. Our wizards can help you determine the construction stages and produce the relevant combinations quickly. Moreover, introduction or modification of construction stages at any point of the design is painless as relevant combination are adapted accordingly to reflect the potential changes.
Check of stresses in concrete fibers and reinforcement for short-term and long-term effects.
Full Interaction of all stress components (N, My, Mz, Vz, Vy, T) takes place wherever possible, which leads to safe and economic designs.
Deflection check of reinforced and prestressed concrete girders accounting for the effects of cracking, concrete aging (through modification of the modulus of elasticity), creep, and shrinkage.
