About IDEA StatiCa

We develop software for structural engineers and detailers. Our development team researches, tests, and applies new methods of analyzing the behaviour of structures and their members. Based on this, we created IDEA StatiCa – software that enables engineers to work faster, evaluate requirements of the national code thoroughly, and use the optimal amount of material. For us, creating software is a way to contribute to making every new construction around the world safer and cheaper.

A TOOL FOR ALL YOUR

SLS CHECKS

Designers can check and visualize stress limitation, crack width and deflection checks. Even for the most demanding cases, like architecturally exposed members and prefabricated walls with arbitrary openings.

CHECK THE CRITICAL MEMBER

Once you identify and check the critical members of a project, the rest becomes easier. IDEA StatiCa concrete allow comprehensive checks for these parts.

OPTIMIZE REINFORCEMENT

 

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.

SOLVE UNUSUAL

CROSS-SECTION TOPOLOGY

IDEA StatiCa Concrete is not limited to the usual cross-section geometries. Flexible modeling tools allow the definition of any cross-section outline and any reinforcement or tendon topology.

ALL THE ULS/SLS CHECKS YOUR PROJECTS REQUIRE

IDEA StatiCa Concrete - Capacity NMM
Capacity N-M-M

The reinforced concrete cross-section capacity volume is calculated internally, taking into account the full interaction of axial force and moments. The user can display and manipulate capacity diagrams (sections of this volume). He/she can then export these diagrams in DXF, image files or excel tables for futher processing.

Shear

The user can add any number/shape of stirrups in the cross-section - optionally resist both torsion and shear, or fully adjusted according to the needs. The θ angle of the compression strut can be optionally derived through optimization. The member shear resistance can be increased through the use of bent-up longitudinal reinforcement.

IDEA StatiCa Concrete - Stress limitation
Stress limitation

Check of stresses in concrete fibers and reinforcement for short-term and long-term effects.

IDEA StatiCa Concrete - Stress limitation
Crack width

The designer can choose between two approaches for the check of cracking on any member. The first, considers concrete ineffective in tension. While the second, accounts for the stiffening effect of concrete while neglecting it's tensile strength, through the utilization of rotating fictitious cracks.

IDEA StatiCa - Deflection control
Deflection check

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.

IDEA StatiCa Concrete - Detailing
Detailing rules

All detailing provisions from the code are enforced. These include minimum and maximum reinforcement areas, spacing of longitudinal bars and stirrups, limit value of tendon stress and many others.

COMPLETE REPORTS. ONE TOOL

 

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.
