Eccentric connections are quite challenging. The designer must account for them in his calculations and make assumptions for their influence on each component (bolts, welds and plates). Moreover, they require connecting plates and members with unorthodox geometries that bring existing calculation methods to their limit.
IDEA StatiCa Connection ensures the correct load application, stress propagation and code check on each of these components in a unified way. It’s advanced modeling capabilities allow the analysis of plates with any shape and members with arbitrary plated section geometries.
