How to Model With Stem Walls in RISAFoundation

New in RISAFoundation V7 is a Stem Wall element. This element would be drawn on a slab element for the purpose of transferring wall loads into the slab. You can add stem walls either from the Draw Stem Walls dialog.

Stem Walls2

Here we can see how this vertical offset induces overturning into the slab.
