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.

After 2 years, the annual event of the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) is back as a live event, and we are very excited to participate again as exhibitors. If you want to meet us in person, and also follow the presentations that will take place, then don’t miss this date!
The theme for this year is “How getting the joints right can save money, save material, and avoid failures”
A number of presentations will focus on the theme for the day – how getting the joints right can save money, save material, and avoid failures. Powerful tools enable us to do exciting things, but care is needed. Complex joints need careful thought and communication, and may be facilitated by different manufacturing techniques.
Other topical subjects for the day will include the use of ‘low carbon’ alternatives for floor slabs, be they concrete or CLT. And of course, the second-generation Eurocodes are now taking share, with key technical content now more-or-less defined. Even though the codes will not be published for serval more years, designers may wish to start exploiting some opportunities they offer.
Continuing to look to the near future, with implications for now, the use of Augmented Reality as a means of quality-checking steel structures will also be discussed.
