Why IDEA StatiCA?
The missing link in your design process and more…
IDEA StatiCA is a class of software on its own. IDEA StatiCA can be used stand alone or for more productive workflows, can link with most major analysis and design softwares for Steel and several softwares for Concrete. Essentially IDEA StatiCA does not compete with any other solution, but compliments your existing solutions or your traditional softwares. IDEA StatiCA’s main focus is on those areas that cannot be handled by Tekla, SAP, Etabs, Staad, and others.
IDEA StatiCA is great for the following:
✔ RC and Steel Optimisation
✔ Replaces estimation using spreadsheets
✔ Can handle any shape concrete with/without openings
✔ Can handle cast-in situ, precast, prestressed concrete sections and members, time dependant analysis, crack width check, fire proofing, non- linear analysis, etc..
✔ Currently engineers are most likely experiencing a very tedious workflow in calculating Strut and tie models, making a lot of assumptions. Idea StatiCA eliminates this tedious work flow and computes all checks both ULS and SLS
✔ For Steel IDEA StatiCA is the number 1 for complex connections and can be used on its own or can link with most major softwares like Staad, TEKLA Structures , Etabs, SAP, REVIT, Tekla Structural Designer, etc…
✔ Great for quick member design checks and can handle multiple and partial loading.

IDEA STATICA STEEL
IDEA StatiCa Connection is a cutting-edge software solution designed for structural engineers and steel connection designers. It revolutionizes the way connections are analyzed and designed, offering a powerful and efficient toolset that ensures the safety and reliability of steel structures. Incorporate IDEA StatiCa Connection into your workflow to elevate your steel structure design capabilities, save time, and ensure the highest standards of safety and performance. Stay ahead in the industry by choosing a software solution that empowers your engineering team to excel in connection design.
DESIGN ANY GEOMETRY AND AVOID OVER-DESIGN CONNECTIONS
According to the Steel Construction Cost joint publication from the SCI, BCSA and TATA Steel, the combined cost of fabrication and raw materials is about 60-80% of the end-product. IDEA StatiCa for steel connection design helps you dramatically lower these costs by:
– Reducing the number of overdesigned structural steel connections
– Enabling engineers and detailers to share accurate and actionable steel connection data quickly
– Using efficiently designed connections to decrease carbon consumption during fabrication

IDEA STATICA CONCRETE AND PRESTRESSING
You can select any concrete member or part of the whole Advance Design model and export it to IDEA StatiCa for structural design. All the members, cross-sections, and internal forces are also completely synchronized if the Advance Design model changes. IDEA StatiCa and Advance Design give you an efficient workflow for your structural concrete design that saves time, minimizes errors, and opens up optimization possibilities. IDEA StatiCa Concrete and Prestressing also contains a unique application; IDEA StatiCa Detail for the structural design of D-regions in concrete structures like wall and beam openings, diaphragms, frame joints, hangings, and brackets. IDEA StatiCa Detail offers a wide variety of templates and also a possibility to import reinforcement from a DXF file – here is an example of a structural design of a dapped end with an opening.
WALL AND DETAIL DESIGN
Go beyond traditional methods for calculating walls and D-regions and see their real structural behavior. Design and code-check walls and D-regions in your concrete structures and get:
– Clear pass/fail results for any geometry
– Ready-made templates, import from DXF
– ULS checks – Strength of concrete and reinforcement, anchoring
– SLS checks – Crack width checks, Stress limitation checks
– Nonlinear deflections
Get rid of your spreadsheets and boost your productivity and daily workflows. With IDEA StatiCa RCS, you can
– Model and reinforce any type of concrete cross-section
– Use staged, composite, pre- and post-tensioned sections
– Have full control with detailed results
– Receive all code-required ULS and SLS checks
