DIMENSION Columns and Walls
Columns and Walls designs reinforced and unreinforced concrete columns and walls. The program displays curves for internal forces and determines the governing normal forces and moments as well as adding the relevant moments from the second order effects during the design.
The deflection and crack width are calculated in the serviceability limit state. The load-bearing capacity is checked in ultimate limit state and accidental limit state, including fire cases. Bending about two axis is also considered.
The reinforcement catalogue contains the commonly used reinforcement types. You can define other types yourself. The reinforcement can be placed automatically.
The program checks requirements for cover and distances of the reinforcement. Each load combination is presented in an MN diagram. The program also shows temperature curves for fire exposure with indication of the damaged edge zone.
