Concrete & Prestressing made simple

We solved complexity of design code for you.
Design of members, cross-sections and details
of reinforced and prestressed concrete
structures.

IDEA StatiCa Detail

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.

ANY TOPOLOGY

No limits in type or shape of detail. Every type can be easily geometrically defined, reinforced and calculated as your project demands.

ANY LOADING

The overall check of the detail takes into account interactions of internal forces in a plane. Engineer stay on the safe side all the time.

IN MINUTES

The whole design and check process is kept short enough to be a part of everyday work of structural engineers and fabricators all around the world.

IDEA StatiCa Concrete & Prestressing

IDEA StatiCa Concrete & Prestressing enables an effective design of all reinforced concrete, prestressed and composite members, cross-sections and details. Structural checks comply both Ultimate and Serviceability limit state requirements, including deflection check considering cracking. Structural analysis of precast members and bridges is performed as time-dependent analysis with respect to construction stages.

EASY TO USE

Fast and simple input with help of specialized wizard, input data generated automatically, real-time pre-design of reinforcement, user templates of reinforcement and tendons, and other features enable easy and fast work. IDEA StatiCa is perfect guide through complex Eurocode requirements.

COMPREHENSIVE

Comprehensive check of members and details according to code provisions and wide range of national annexes. Complete check of bridges, buildings, liquid retaining and containment structures for Ultimate and Serviceability limit state.

ECONOMIC AND SAFE

Design methods for optimum use of all materials in the cross-section. Transparent assumptions and white box results allow for minimizing risks of structural defects.

BIM – Effective Workflow

IDEA StatiCa Concrete & Prestressing

FEA PROGRAMS

Take the advantage of easy import of structural geometry, internal forces of all load cases, combinations and construction stages. You can design a simple beam in the same way as for example segments of the bridge constructed by cantilever method.

CAD PROGRAMS

Take advantage of export of all drawings into DXF, and import of general cross-section and tendon´s shape. These features save a lot of engineer's time during preparation of drawings.

ULTIMATE LIMIT STATE

Analysis of cross-section loaded by any combination of internal forces.

Program automatically calculates the equivalent thin-walled section for torsion check of concrete cross-section with regard to shear reinforcement selected to resist torsion. Concrete and reinforcement is checked.

Interaction of all components of internal forces is checked (N, My, Mz, Vz, Vy T). EN/AISC.

Shear analysis with strut and tie models is adopted.

Stirrups and links

Shape of links and stirrups can be selected to resist shear and/or torsion. Optimization of compression strut angle θ can be used.

Bent-up bars

Longitudinal reinforcing bars can be set as bent-up bars to increase shear resistance of member.

Shear at the Interface between composite parts of concrete section

Stress check at the interface between composite parts of cross-section with consideration of interface type and reinforcement crossing the interface.

Minimum and maximum reinforcement areas, spacing of longitudinal bars and shear reinforcement, limit value of tendon stress. etc. All detailing rules checks are referenced to code.

Steel structure can be anchored into concrete block. Base plate is in contact with concrete. Tension is taken by anchors, shear by bolts, friction or shear iron.

Response of cross-section represents the stress-strain state of all cross-section components. It provides clear and detailed information about the behaviour and utilization of cross-section. Response N-M-M analysis provides results for further interaction check of all internal forces.

SERVICEABILITY LIMIT STATE

Often critical type of check

Stress limitation

Check of stresses in concrete fibres and reinforcement for short-term and long-term effects.

Brittle failure

Load-carrying capacity is verified using reduced area of prestressing reinforcement..

Crack width

Crack width is calculated for reinforced, prestressed, and composite 1D and 2D concrete members (liquid retaining and containment structures). The concrete may be effective or ineffective in tension.

Fatigue

Determination of stress-range and fatigue resistance considering the fatigue strength of concrete, reinforcement and prestressing reinforcement. Fatigue checks are provided for both road and railway bridges.

Deflection control

Deflection control of reinforced and prestressed concrete girders with effect of cracking, concrete age (modulus of elasticity), creep and shrinkage.

Decompression

The decompression condition requires position of prestressing reinforcement within concrete in compression.

SPECIAL ANALYSIS

Detail analysis enables safe and economic design.

Bridge load rating

Automated calculation of bridge load rating for concrete bridges (road and railway) can be performed for both Ultimate and Serviceability limit states. Existing data input for design process of bridge structure may be used in subsequent bridge load rating analysis. BIM links and effective iterative process significantly save your time.

TDA

Unique 3D time dependent analysis of creep and shrinkage of concrete represents real behaviour of structure during construction stages and its service life. BIM solution enables the application of this sophisticated analysis also for structural members calculated in 3D models of your FEA software.

M-N-kappa

M-N-rotation diagram can be used for the calculation of properties of plastic hinges e.g. for seismic analysis using Pushover Method.

Construction stages

Predefined construction stages are provided depending on type of structure.

Nonlinear creep

Time dependent analysis (TDA) enables to determine nonlinear creep effect. Such analysis results in more realistic results and enables more economic design with regard to stress limitation checks.

Details

Strut&Tie Method is adopted for corbel/bracket design with all checks of all concrete components (struts and nodal zones) and reinforcement (space looped and framing bars, stirrups). Detailing rules check, anchorage lengths etc. See further development of detail´s design here.
