Release notes Concrete & Prestressing version 10.1

 

Introduction

We are happy to release a new version of IDEA StatiCa Concrete. Version 10.1 is another enhancement of design process focused on beams, cross-sections, walls, dapped ends, openings, hangings, brackets, and other concrete details. Highlights of this version are:

  • Fire resistance
  • Export of the report from RCS to PDF and DOC

All of this with precise checks of concrete and reinforcement strength, stresses and strains. Everything that the code requires, with results clearly visualized for better understanding of the structural behavior.

Calculate yesterday’s estimates!

 

Installation and licensing

IDEA StatiCa Version 10.1 will not overwrite 10.0 installation. You will have both on your PC. All future versions of IDEA StatiCa will behave the same way to ensure smooth transition between versions.

From September 2019, IDEA StatiCa no longer supports installation on Windows 7.

Version 10.1 does not require license update or any other action from the end-users, just download latest setup.

Single licenses – IDEA StatiCa 10.1 can be downloaded on all PCs of the one user (sharing the license with other users is forbidden according to EULA – no change from previous versions)

Network licenses – IDEA StatiCa 10.1 has to be deployed on all end-machines and multiple users can access it based on purchased number of seats

 

IDEA StatiCa RCS

Fire resistance

The new functionality of the fire resistance according to EN 1992-1-2: 2006 – 11 is implemented in the code-check of the RCS application. The check is available for the member types slab, wall, beam, and column. When code-checking a member to fire resistance, tabulated data method is used, which is a sufficient approach for the majority of the structures. The functionality can be selected during the creation of a new project in the wizard, where the member type is chosen as well (Fig.9). Additionally, projects created in older versions can be checked to fire resistance, too. Regarding the national annexes, the general Eurocode is supported only.

Export of the report from RCS to PDF and DOC

Newly, the export of the report is available from all concrete applications. Now, application RCS enables the export of the report to PDF or DOC files (Fig.10).

IDEA Open Model (IOM) API

We re-worked the IDEA Open Model (IOM) interface. This public API can be used for creating a link between IDEA StatiCa and any FEA or CAD software.

We have placed all information such as repositories, IOM-examples, etc. at GitHub community. The forum can be used for the resolving issues with implementation IDEA StatiCa IOM by third parties.
