Shear Capacity Check

Post by mlatour@unisa.it » 04 Jun 2018, 17:17

Dear All,

I have noticed that when the software performs the shear capacity check adopts automatically a slope of the compressive strut equal to 45°. This assumption seems quite conservative. Is there any possibility fo modify the automatic option?

BR,

You are indeed right.
In the new v2018 release of the programs the slope of the compressive strut will be automatically calculated by the program, avoiding the very conservative assumption of SeismoBuild 2016.

Thanks for the reply, meanwhile I will modify fictitiously the spacing of the stirrups. Thanks again!
