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.
Changing steel joint and connection design
IDEA StatiCa Steel
IDEA Connection and CBFEM method are results of our long-term R&D efforts in the area of structural design and check of steel structure joints. In 2013, after years of preparations, we teamed up with top Czech universities and after 2 years of intensive development, testing and verifying a new tool for steel engineers was born. IDEA Connection with CBFEM provides precise checks, results of strength, stiffness and buckling analysis of steel joint. Bolts, welds, concrete blocks are checked according to common design formulas.

IDEA StatiCa Concrete:
IDEA StatiCa Detail deals efficiently with all parts of structure also known as discontinuity regions such as walls, dapped ends, openings, hangings, brackets, and areas above supports. It provides precise checks of concrete and reinforcement strength, stresses and strains. These results are clearly visualized for better understanding of details of structures.
We're distributors for some of the industry's leading software applications in their respective areas - including Tekla Structures for BIM.
