Wood Shear Wall Analysis & Design

Module Summary

  • Analyzes and designs individual wood shear walls with the Individual Full-Height Wall Segment Shear Walls method
  • Allows solid walls or walls with openings
  • Considers combined axial load and bending
  • Vertical and lateral loads can be specified as point loads or uniformly distributed loads
  • Reports results for sheathing design, sheathing attachment, and chord design
  • Offers the option to design a wall footing
  • 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
