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

IDEA StatiCa - BIM link midas Civil-Gen to IDEA Statica
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?

Midas Civil/Gen 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 modeling 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. And 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
  • Integral bridge made of reinforced or prestressed concrete
IDEA StatiCa - Integral bridge -midas Civil to IDEA StatiCa
  • Prestressed girder bridges (Tee, double Tee, I-girders, multicell box-girders)
IDEA StatiCa - midas Civil - curved bridge
  • Composite bridge of type concrete-concrete
IDEA StatiCa - composite of type concrete-concrete midas Civil to 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
  • Steel bridges
  • Multi-story buildings, Skyscrapers, Power plants, etc.

Midas Civil/Gen to IDEA StatiCa workflow

Good news everyone, Midas Civil/Gen are linked to IDEA StatiCa for 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

  • 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.

Create your project in midas Civil/Gen and export to IDEA file according to these tutorials:


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.
