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.

Design and code check of a diaphragm using IDEA StatiCa Detail

Diaphragms are important D-regions in the bridge structures, which are carrying effects of all loads by torsion, shear, and flexure through the bearings to the piers or directly to the substructure. Due to that fact it is necessary to keep bigger attention to its design and analysis.

The topology of compression struts and tensile areas are influenced by many factors as the rate of concrete plasticity, tension stiffening effect, size of the bearings, type of loads etc.

The webinar will be focused on the design, reinforcement, and code-check of a box diaphragm which is part of a continues bridge with the spans 40, 45 and 40 meters. Using non-linear analysis and the effect of tension stiffening we can also check the serviceability limit state, which was impossible in strut and tie method.

On Thursday, November 15th, we run two same sessions: the first at 11:00 CET (Amsterdam time), followed by another one at 1:00 PM EDT (New York time). Register below for both and join the session that fits your day.
