Masonry Design Software

The Masonry Design Software module in FEM-Design helps you design load-bearing masonry structures (both lightweight concrete and brick walls) according to Eurocode 6.

Mortar effect can be considered in calculations. The first-order stresses of the structure, both bending and compression, are automatically applied in second order effects. Non-load-bearing parts, such as regions above and below openings, are automatically detected.

The peak values of the finite element model are removed, the average bending and compression of the walls are considered in the design. The strips, or the elementary part of calculation method, are created automatically and there is also an option to edit manually. The detail of the wall connections with one another and the slabs can be considered in their load-bearing capacity.
