This Connection Wednesday webinar is focusing on a high-profile project from Applied Engineering Design (AED), a pioneering Scottish engineering design specialist with offices in Edinburgh and Bath. AED has used IDEA StatiCa in Battersea Power Station – one of the biggest regeneration projects in Europe and an iconic landmark on London’s riverbank and has been tasked with creating a high-level temporary roadway at the site which is capable of carrying heavy construction traffic.
“It is a particularly complex commission and we have become early adopters of IDEA StatiCa because its advanced design and check process is both powerful and quick enough to be a useful tool in our everyday work as structural engineers for fabricators. I had become aware of the limitations of commonplace software and I had been looking for an alternative – Tim Hetherington, Director of AED”
In the second part of the webinar, we are presenting a Helpdesk highlight, to show you how IDEA StatiCa accounts for multiple shear planes in bolted plates and how the results are presented.
