[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

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
