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 […]

There are many different types deflection values calculated by RISA-3D.  Let’s take a deeper dive into each. Absolute deflection is the maximum absolute value for deflection in the member local lateral y- and z-axis. In engineering terms, this value is also commonly referred to as global deflection since it encompasses the entire movement of a […]
