Novità IDEA StatiCa 5.3
IDEA StatiCa – news in version 5.3
IDEA StatiCa Steel – Connection
General rolled cross-sections defined by parameters: I, U, L
There are 3 new options in the selection of rolled sections for I, U and L.
Profile is not chosen from the library.The shape is defined by several parameters.
This option allows to input any profile also from databases, which are not yet supported by IDEA Connection software.
There are two improvements for the work with bolts. Long list of bolts was divided according to classes. Desired bolt can be find easier and faster.
Any bolt can be set as „user input“. User can input and edit all properties according to his wish.
Japanese and US profiles
There are several new product lines of US and Japanese profiles available.
Possibility of averaging of stress in welds over the whole cross-section
CBFEM analysis model in IDEA Connection provides longitudinal and transversal stress in each section of weld. Engineer can check the weld with precise calculated values in each section or he can use average stress. Average values are calculated for each part with the same sign. Weld is divided into parts with the same signs. Average value is calculated for each part separately.
Version 5.3 has improved averaging for thin walled cross-section with arcs. Welds on all parts of the cross-section are considered as one weld. Parts with the same sign are determined on this weld. Results are much more realistic.
Modified output of bolt check for more shear sections
In the connection with more shear sections is shear force in bolt divided into appropriate number of sections. Values in all shear sections are printed in the table (divided by slash). The check is done for each section separately.
