By: Javier Encinas, PE | April 10, 2017 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. It includes the design of out-of-plane bearing walls based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. Following is a visual overview of the steps required to design this type of concrete walls using ASDIP CONCRETE. Click To Enlarge Enter the wall thickness in the Geometry tab. Specify the reinforcement size and spacing. Enter the unsupported height and condition at top. ASDIP CONCRETE generates an At-a-Glance presentation of results, organized by topic. [...]
