Seismic Design of Masonry Walls in RISA-3D


RISA-3D supports the Seismic Design of Masonry Wall Panels according to the provisions of TMS 402-16 (as well as ACI 530-13). When designing the masonry wall panels, seismic design rules are established, in order to adhere to various provisions from TMS 402-16, including: - Boundary Zone Reinforcement - Minimum Spacing of Horizontal Reinforcement (Out-of-Plane) - Maximum In-Plane Shear Reinforcement - Mortar Type
