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.

Webinar – Design of coupling beams in shear walls

When: Wednesday, 10 Nov 2022, 10:00am – 11:00am (GMT)

Participation: Free, registration required

This webinar introduces the attendees the challenges of coupling beams design in shear walls, and how to code-check them quickly and easily in the IDEA StatiCa Detail application.
Shear walls are essential elements of structures, especially in high-rise buildings. When designing a shear wall with openings, it’s crucial to focus on the coupling beams since they can significantly affect the building’s lateral resistance capacity.
Common 3D models in FEA software cannot fully capture the behavior of this critical part, especially in cases where the coupling beam is a deep beam or weakened by an opening.


Looking for a safe and economical solution to this problem? Don’t want to waste time with a complex assessment? Do you want to see the results for the ultimate limit state and the serviceable limit state, including, e.g., the crack width check?


Join our webinar on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, at 10:00 AM (GMT) to learn more about coupling beams, and how to code-check them quickly and easily in the IDEA StatiCa Detail application.
