CBFEM - A revolutionary method for steel connection analysis and design

IDEA StatiCa

CBFEM is a synergy of the standard approach to connection design (component method) and finite elements. It is a unique method for design and code-check of steel connections, members, and anchoring. It can be used to analyze the majority of joints, anchoring, and details of various topology while staying on the safe side defined by AISC, Eurocode, and other national standards. Thousands of engineers worldwide have adopted CBFEM within the software IDEA StatiCa.
