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.

IDEA StatiCa Webinar – BIM workflows

The value of BIM workflows in steel connection design - 2022
In this webinar, we will explain in detail how modern BIM workflows can significantly improve the design of Steel connections in terms of efficiency, economy, and safety factors.

Learn more about:

  • Why current practice is inefficient for modern connection design
  • Why designing connections with forces under equilibrium matters
  • Current tools for modern BIM workflows

The Speakers Summary

Costis Hatzopoulos
Technical Manager

BIM workflows between different disciplines (architects, engineers, contractors, etc.) have been implemented significantly in recent years, yet the value of such workflows between structural engineers and fabricators for the design of steel connections has been highly overlooked. Since steel connections are the most critical part of every steel structure (and almost always the source of failure), BIM workflows are even more important to ensure that connections are designed in the most efficient, economical and safe way. 
In this webinar, we will demonstrate how the different stakeholders can take advantage of current BIM technologies to exchange data between global structural analysis software and IDEA StatiCa   as well as good practices for the correct simulation of the connection models. 
We will also discuss the common practice in the UK for data exchange between the consultants and designers (envelope forces not in equilibrium), what are the issues, and how to overcome them by applying modern BIM workflows.
