CMU walls in accordance with TMS 402/ACI 530/ ASCE 5. This program is based on the wall design for out-of-plane loads procedure in TMS 402/ACI 530/ ASCE 5. It will analyze a typical wall panel, a leg next to an opening or a leg between two openings. There is also a graphical layout of the opening(s) to verify input.

Key Benefits

  • Easy and straight forward to use.
  • Analyze walls for axial loading as well as horizontal wind and seismic pressures.
  • Analyze panel legs next to openings without having to perform hand calculations to distribute uniform axial loads, horizontal loads or panel weight above opening to the panel leg.
  • Graphical output to verify opening dimensions.
