For concrete column members, the load combination producing the maximum shear code check is reported in the Detail Report and corresponding Results spreadsheet. Since concrete is evaluated based on a batch solution, this can be useful when shear governs the design. RISAFloor Concrete tab of the Column Results spreadsheet: Column Detail Report: RISA-3D: Concrete Columns […]

Concrete pile design is now incorporated in the pile cap results in RISAFoundation. With the addition of axial pile design in RISAFoundation v10.0, the program can model concrete pile shapes and design the reinforcement, or the user can also apply their own custom rebar layout. Now you can get a full analysis and design of […]

RISAFoundation now has the capability to consider seismic loading for retaining walls. The Mononobe-Okabe formulation has been implemented, though direct input of the maximum pressure at the top of the wall can also be defined to create the inverted triangular loading. For details on the Coulomb calculations and the variation due to the Seed & […]
