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.

Load on a curve from DXF reference

Load on a curve imported from DXF reference can save you a lot of time during the input of loads for concrete structures.

This new functionality can help a lot when defining shear stress flow in sections capable of transferring the torsion effects, a load transfer via a web of a box-girder section or equivalent load due to prestress.

The curve imported from a CAD software as a DXF file can be defined as a line, polyline, arc and even a spline, where curves are transformed to discrete coordinates.

The (in general non-uniform) load is then applied directly on the curve where the direction in the local or global coordinate system of the curve or concrete member with the option of inclination can be edited.
