Web openings close to the node

Web openings can be a real pain for connection design, as current design guides assume the beam to be solid at the end, and limit the end web post width, in order to carry out the design. IDEA StatiCa, with its general approach, provides a complete and very accurate solution, that takes into account the reduction of the web stiffness due to the opening, and allows the simulation of any location and shape of web openings.
