In this video, you’ll learn how to investigate your RISA-3D model for P-Delta divergence errors. This type of error is common in general structural analysis software and has two major causes: a model that is unstable or a model that is too flexible. For this investigation, two separate steel frame models will be used to […]

In RISA-3D, the current method of design for masonry lintels is Simply Supported where the masonry lintels are idealized into a simply supported pin-pin beam configuration. Now, masonry lintels can instead be analyzed using finite element analysis. With this method, the lintel will be fully integrated as part of the wall. In the Wall Design […]
