How to Model Concrete Walls with Openings in RISAFloor and RISA-3D

RISAFloor and RISA-3D now has the ability to design concrete walls with openings. Drawing wall openings in RISAFloor and RISA-3D is done using the Wall Panel Editor in either program. After you create your wall using the Draw Wall Panel button, simply double-click the wall to open the Wall Panel Editor.

From the editor you can add openings, draw design regions, apply continuous boundary conditions, update the Material and update the Wall Design Rule.

At solution the program will then analyze the wall and design reinforcement for each region separately, as well as provide a lintel analysis for wall regions above openings.
