IDEA Statica Steel
IDEA StatiCa Connection can design all types of welded or bolted connections, base plates, footing and anchoring. It provides precise checks, results of strength, stiffness and buckling analysis of a steel joint. Bolts, welds and concrete blocks are checked according to EC/AISC. Templates for most-used connections are available as well as wide range of predefined hot rolled and sheet welded members.
We have created a unique method for structural analysis and design of connections called component-based finite element model (CBFEM). Engineers can work with joints, connections and footing without limitation in shapes and loading. Templates for most-used connections are available. Choose from frequently-used or general crosssections and wide range of hot rolled and sheet welded members. IDEA Connection, with CBFEM method in its core, is:
useable for most of joints, anchors, and details used in building practice
SIMPLE AND FAST
provides results in time comparable with existing methods and tools
gives clear information about joint behavior, stress, strain, reserves of individual components and overall safety and reliability.
