The following worked examples are in a PDF file format. You will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat available at www.adobe.com.

 

CODE SEARCH PROGRAM

The following examples are from "The Guide to the Use of the Wind Load Provisions of ASCE 7" (Wind Guide to ASCE 7), the ASCE 7 snow commentary examples and the "2000 IBC Handbook - Structural Provisions" by Ghosh & Chittenden. Please note that the publications use table values and rounding while the program answers are based on formulas and are therefore exact, so the publication answers will be close, but may not match exactly

TILT-UP Concrete Wall Program

The following examples are from "Notes on ACI 318 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete" by the Portland Cement Association (PCA) or the ACI 551.2R-10 "Design Guide for Tilt-up Concrete Panels". Please note that the publications use rounding while the program answers are based on formulas and are therefore exact, so the publication answers will be close, but may not match exactly.

CMU Wall Program

The following examples are from the "2009 Design of Reinforced Masonry Structures" published by the Concrete Masonry Association of California and Nevada. Please note that the publication uses rounding while the program answers are based on formulas and are therefore exact, so the publication answers will be close, but may not match exactly. Also the publication properties and forces are based on per foot of wall while the program is based on the design strip width (24" in the example), so you need to multiple the publication's results by 2.

Steel Floor Vibration Program

The examples are from the "Steel Design Guide Series #11 - Floor Vibrations Due to Human Activity" published by the American Institue of Steel Construction. The program can perform 4 calculations side by side. The examples that are labeled revised are the example problems from the design guide with variations to show how you can experiment with results in a side by side comparison.
