Novità Idea StatiCa 6.3

Release note IDEA StatiCa v6.3

IDEA StatiCa Steel

Faster computational core

We optimized solver of IDEA Connection to make calculations of joints/connections four times quicker. Version 6.3 calculates in 10 seconds what took 40 seconds in version 6.2.

motore più veloce

This functionality is available both in Expert and Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

New cutting method of members

We have developed a new cutting method. Now we can cut all types of members.

nuovi metodi per tagliare i componenti d'acciaio

This functionality is available only in Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

Deactivation of tension/shear interaction in check of bolts

We have enabled possibility to deactivate of tension/shear interaction check of bolts.

Deactivation of tension/shear interaction in check of bolts

This functionality is available both in Expert and Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

Robot Structural add-in

A new Robot Structural add-in was developed to enable direct link between Robot and IDEA Connection.

This functionality is available both in Expert and Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

Plate editor and graphical representation of the member

We have improved plate editor and enabled definition of the hole on the plate edge.
At the same time we have added graphical representation of the connected member to the plate into outputs in the Report.

Plate editor and graphical representation of the member

Work plane

We have improved current manufacturing operation work plane by graphical representation of the plane, which can simplify definition of the plane position.

This functionality is available both in Expert and Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

Effective area of stress in concrete

We have improved method of effective area determination and also improved graphical representation of that. Calculated effective area is marked as green. Final effective area for contact stress check is highlighted as shaded.

Effective area of stress in concrete

This functionality is available both in Expert and Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

Widener

We have also improved manufacturing operation widener. Now it is possible to use that for modeling of large haunches.

This functionality is available both in Expert and Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

Improved link to Tekla Structures

Link now works for a wide variety of connections/joints. However, please take into account yet unsupported functionality:

  • Notches/hole in plates/members and stubs. Workaround: Import the whole joint and manually add these in IDEA Connection
  • Bended plates. Workaround: Use two plates welded together
  • Welded and composed cross-sections. Workaround: Properly define cross-sections in Tekla
  • Cuts by CHS and RHS profile. Workaround: Import the whole joint and manually add these in IDEA Connection
  • Anchoring and base plate. Workaround: Import the whole joint and manually add these in IDEA Connection

Remarks:

  • Be aware that there is not a proper description of rounding of hot-rolled sections in Tekla Structures, IDEA Connection defines missing values by itself
  • AIways check imported bolts/welds and add necessary data if missing in Tekla Structures
  • We are continuously adding profile types (huge variety in Tekla Structures)

This functionality is available only in Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

Improved link to Advance Steel

Link now works for a wide variety of connections/joints. However, please take into account yet unsupported functionality:

  • Notches/hole in plates/members and stubs. Workaround: Import the whole joint and manually add these in IDEA Connection
  • Bended plates. Workaround: Use two plates welded together
  • Anchoring and base plate. Workaround: Import the whole joint and manually add these in IDEA Connection

This functionality is available only in Enhanced edition of IDEA StatiCa Steel.

 

IDEA StatiCa Concrete

Faster analysis of cross-sections with large number of reinforcement bars in layers

We have increased the speed of checks of cross-section extremely by substituting high number of reinforcement bars in one layer by an alternative model.
