IDEA StatiCa Steel training

A complete course on Steel Connections

This online course covers all the major aspects of IDEA StatiCa Steel, and provides you with the necessary knowledge that will allow you to immediately start using the software, but also some more advanced tips & tricks that will speed up the learning process and make you more productive in the shortest possible time.
We know how valuable your time is, and how pressing the project deadlines you are facing are, and that’s why we designed this course so that you spent only 2 hours per day, over 4 continuous days. This way, your daily work will not be affected a lot, and you will also have the time to practice between the sessions.
4 Days (2h/day)
13:00 – 15:00 (GMT)

What to expect from the course

The course aims to provide the participant with the following:

  • Understanding the CBFEM method
  • Getting familiar with the user interface of the software
  • Step-by-Step examples
  • Understanding the design workflow
  • Modelling techniques
  • How to use the buckling & stiffness analysis
  • How to use the BIM links
  • Good practices
  • Tips & Tricks

This course assumes no prior knowledge of IDEA StatiCa, but it is important to have an understanding of the principles behind steel connection design. An understanding of the general principals of IDEA StatiCa is also of use but is not essential.
