Please tell me if the program can give the loads for every wall to design the continous foundations.

Thank You!

Re: Design of the foundation

Hello,
yes, in the results you can find all forces at all walls, and reactions in the supports

you can try it in our demoversion (http://www.amquake.eu/en/download.html)

Re: Design of the foundation

Thank you for your prompt response. I have the version 1.25 user SC PROCONRIM SRL.

Question 1.For a given model, for a wall i have in the FORCES tab the following itmes
- Nx'
- Vy'
- Vz'
- T'
- My1'
- My2'
- Mz2'
-My'mid
- Mz'mid
Can you explain for every item its meaning. From my understanding this are for local axes of the walls ie. Nx is the total weight of a given wall. But if they are in local axes how can I display this local axes?

Question 2. In tab Reactions this items are given for the global axis. Please tell me if the moment Mx is the moment in the X direction around Y.

Thank You!

Re: Design of the foundation

Q1:
_x is local axes in direction of wall,

NX is total load (not only weight)

Local axes of walls you can see in wired model. (cca 9th icon from the left)

q2: Reaction is in the global axis. _x is moment in the rules of right hand.

I have selected the 9th icon but the local axes are not displayed. Please see the picture at the following adress:
