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.

The next part of our summer series will present the shear types of connections. We will have a look at the differences in the designs based on the real rigidity of the connection. We will also emphasize the important changes in the model setup when considering the non-rigid joint.

Our summer webinar series targets the IDEA StatiCa users who are either new to the software or would like to remind themselves of some elementary features and settings of the software.

Learning how to use IDEA StatiCa Connection is considered to be a fast and easy process. Still, there are some important pieces of knowledge that are essential for a correct model design.  

Why change the force position? When to use a different model type of a member? How to decide whether the connection is rigid or pinned? We will answer these questions in the webinar.

The Webinar Summer Series Schedule

Tackling IDEA StatiCa Connection is a new series of five short webinars for beginners to get quickly familiar with the program. From first steps up to BIM links, learn quickly how to use the software and be productive and safe in designing and code-checking steel connections.

There will be five webinars with relevant content:

  • June 30, 2021 – The basics – setting up a license, general settings, learning UI and controls
  • July 14, 2021 – Moment connections – ways of modeling moment connections, load effects
  • July 28, 2021 – Shear connections – creating shear/pinned connections, load position, model type
  • August 11, 2021 – Complex connections – designing operations and templates, effective modeling
  • August 25, 2021 – BIM links – CAD and FEA links, workflows, online Viewer plugins
