Overview

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 EN/AISC/CISC/AU/SP 16. Templates for most-used connections are available as well as wide range of predefined hot rolled and sheet welded members.

WHY IDEA StatiCa?

STEEL CONNECTION DESIGN – REINVENTED

Design and check all your steel connections according to the code, in minutes.

Any topology – Manufacturing Operations

Any loading – All Internal Forces From 3D Global Analysis
