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.

Experimental study of Moment connection

Today, we are proud and happy to share a LinkedIn post by Eduardo Nuñez Castellanos, Professor at the University of Chile.

“The presented figure corresponds to an investigation carried out at the University of Chile, by Dr Ricardo Herrera, in which I had the opportunity to participate, oriented to the qualification of a connection to moment, using numerical and experimental study, reaching a favourable performance as established in AISC-341.

From that research, I decided to verify using a commercial software called IDEA StatiCa, finding the possibility to analyze and design this connection.

The results are impressive … stresses, plastic deformations, stability and reproduction of failure modes such as those obtained in an experimental study. This is summarized in reliability …

Up to here phenomenal … but being able to do it in less than 3 minutes fulfilling AISC-2016 Standards and interoperability with TEKLA make it an ideal tool.”
