Masonry Column Analysis & Design

Module Summary

  • Analyzes and designs individual masonry columns
  • Permits slenderness to be defined in a variety of ways
  • Allows various top and bottom support conditions
  • Considers square or rectangular section shapes with user-definable rebar sets
  • Considers combined axial load and uniaxial bending
  • Axial loads may be specified with or without eccentricity
  • Lateral loads can be point loads, concentrated moments, full-length uniform loads, and partial-length uniform loads creating bending about X-X axis
  • Incorporates either Allowable Stress Design or Strength Design methodology
  • Offers the convenience of fill-in-the-blanks style forms and instantaneous recalculation to facilitate the evaluation of “what-if” scenarios
  • Provides highly efficient results summaries as well as generous detail in the on-screen and printed results
  • Provides sketch graphics to verify dimensions and load placement – including rich, 3D graphics that support zoom, pan, and many customizable view options.
