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.

MIDAS & IDEA StatiCa – The powerful BIM integration

Do you use Midas Civil or Gen for modeling complex bridges and buildings, but struggle with the code-checks? We have a proposal for you! With our BIM link, you can enjoy the best of Midas for the global model and analysis and use IDEA StatiCa for the code-checks!

Using two powerful tools will make you an efficient engineering expert

Why Midas for the global model and analysis?

It is a state-of-the-art engineering software that sets a new standard for the design of bridges and civil structures. It features a distinctively user-friendly interface and optimal design solution functions that can account for construction stages and time-dependent properties. Its highly developed modelling and analysis functions enable engineers to overcome common challenges and inefficiencies of finite element analysis.

Why IDEA StatiCa for the code-checks?

IDEA StatiCa Concrete provides economic and safe code-checks of common, as well as complex, non-standard reinforced, prestressed concrete cross-sections. IDEA StatiCa Steel can design all types of welded or bolted connections according to various codes of practice. 

Types of structures modeled and analyzed in Midas Civil/Gen and easily code-checked in IDEA StatiCa

  • Bridges build-up by complex construction stage methods, such as free cantilever method (FCM),  incremental launching method (ILM), movable scaffolding system (MSS),  and others
  • Multi-story buildings, Skyscrapers, Power plants, etc.

Good news everyone, Midas Civil/Gen is linked to IDEA StatiCa all over the world!
Follow these simple steps to set up the BIM link correctly:

Activate the BIM link in Midas Civil/Gen

IDEA StatiCa - midas Civil-Gen to IDEA StatiCa workflow
  • Create a model of the bridge, industrial structure, or building
  • Subject the structure to load actions, dead load, prestress, temperature load, moving load, etc.
  • Generate the construction stages if needed
  • Run the analysis in midas, get the internal forces
  • Export to IDEA StatiCa
IDEA StatiCa - midas to IDEA StatiCa workflow
  • Set the design parameters like code, reinforcement, manufacturing operations, and check it there!
For Concrete design: 
  • Code-check any concrete cross-section, reinforced, pre-or post-tensioned, even composite with a cast-in-situ slab.  Assess bridge load rating (BLR).

For Steel design: 
  • Code-check any topology of steel connection 

Before you decide to assess the structure in IDEA StatiCa, check if your desired code is implemented in IDEA StatiCa Concrete or Steel.

Check out the short videos below showing the principle of the BIM link between Midas Civil/Gen and IDEA StatiCa:

Many structural engineers use Midas Civil to IDEA StatiCa workflow in their everyday practice. For example, let’s take a look at an interesting case study of a Prestressed concrete roof in Zbysov, Czech Republic.
