[Size: 18 MB] ... Concrete ShearWall Design: QuickConcreteWall specializes in reinforced concrete shear walls and is an excellent tool for detailing a concrete wall subject to in-plane forces.  Complex ACI interaction checks are done instantaneously as you tweak design parameters and view the results. Complete rebar detailing is provided in a productivity-quick format.

Modeling
    A rectangular wall, or wall with columns at the ends
    Reinforcement: Specify horizontal & vertical bars, column longitudinal bars (if columns), and ties
    Single-curtain or double-curtain reinforcement
    Multiple (independent) walls may be designed in a single project file
    Specify extents of special boundary elements (seismic provisions)
    Specify manner in which horizontal wall bars are embedded into columns (or boundary elements): Straight, hooked, or not at all
    Option to have crossties on every column longitudinal bar, or only as required by code
    Specify whether or not column longitudinal bars use a tangential lap splice
    Enter the design displacement for seismic design (when seismic provisions are to be used)
    European rebar sizes

Loading
    Supported loads: shear, In-plane moment, axial loading
    No limit on the number of load sets that can be entered
    Load combinations & factoring performed automatically
    ASCE 7-10 Load Combinations
    Custom "building code" load combinations
    Import & Export Loads (text)
    Optionally include the self-weight of the wall
    Specify shear loads at the top of the wall or at the base

Design Checks Performed
    Checks concrete walls for in-plane forces
    IBC 2012 and ACI 318-11specifications
    ACI Ch. 21, (seismic) including special boundary elements
    Detailing when special boundary elements are not present (21.9.6.5)
    Wall minimum reinforcement (horizontal & vertical) of ACI Ch 14
    Wall reinforcement max spacing (horizontal & vertical) of ACI Ch 14
    Wall shear strength according to ACI Ch 11
    Wall & column detailing requirements of ACI Ch 7
    Wall flexure/axial interaction strength per ACI Ch 10
    Wall shear strength according to ACI Ch 21
    (when seismic provisions are to be used)
    Wall steel ratio/spacing according to ACI Ch 21
    (when seismic provisions are to be used)
    Special boundary element detailing & related checks of ACI Ch 21

Results
    Demand/Capacity ratios with clear Pass/Fail indicators
    All check equations shown graphically for easy verification
    Context-specific drawings related to each group of calculations
    Interaction diagram plotted for each load case
    Easy identification of the load combination that controlled
    Calculates development and splice lengths for wall & column bars

Reports
    Full-color reporting for a professional look and easy reading
    Detailed design sketch
    Echo of input data
    Extremely customizable, from a summary to full-calculation details
