29 Aug Why IDEA StatiCa Detail?
For years, we have been researching new ways how to reinforce and code-check concrete details of all topologies and loading. In 2016, we partnered up with one of the top technical university worldwide – ETH Zurich – to create IDEA StatiCa Detail, a revolutionary tool for concrete design with unique solver, material models, GUI and output report.
IDEA StatiCa Detail reinforces and checks all types of walls, beams, and details (in 2D) such as dapped ends, openings, hangings, brackets, diaphragms, frame joints and many more. We provide clear pass / fail checks of ULS and SLS according to the code with complete report and bill of material. The most effective position of reinforcement is identified automatically. IDEA StatiCa Detail uses finite element analysis to break the limits of the standard design approach. Non-linear analysis performed in the background. Stress and strain determined by modified compression field theory. Reinforcement results based on tension chord model. Crack width and deflection checks. Compression softening. Tension stiffening. Results verified by ETH Zurich.
