Set cracked - click or box around concrete member(s) to set to cracked.
Set uncracked- click or box around concrete member(s) to set to uncracked.
Toggle - click or box around concrete member(s) to toggle between cracked or uncracked.
The member color coding updates to reflect the cracked or uncracked status.
Review Wall Stress
Note: The following limitations and assumptions apply to Review Wall Stress
Only meshed wall panels are considered, mid-pier walls are excluded.
The analysis type specified in Design Settings>Analysis determines which set of analysis results are used for the review.
For the above analysis type, the loadcases and combinations considered are those from the last performed building analysis of that type.
This gives you the flexibility to review the stresses for a subset of loadcases/combinations if required.
By running Analyse All you can ensure all active gravity, lateral and seismic (not seismic RSA) combinations have been considered.
Stresses are available for seismic but not for seismic RSA combinations - these are beyond scope. (Review Wall Stress is more particularly aimed at determining the cracked status of panels under wind loading).
Chasedown results are not considered.
Axial load reductions are always taken into account.
The maximum stress value from all nodes for all analysed cases/combinations is reported in a tooltip for each panel. This value is used to determine if the stress threshold has been exceeded.
The reinforcement content in the panel is not considered in determining the stress value.
The loading droplist in the status bar does not filter the status for individual cases/combinations.
To review/update the cracked status of all wall panels to be compatible with the stress levels for the loadcases/ combinations that have been analysed, proceed as follows:
