RC Wall design

Is it possible to view a walls in-plane moment diagram, and if so how?

I have walls supported by columns. I find detaling reinforcement for walls difficult using required reinforcement. Please show how this can be done effectively without getting these extreme values above colunms, and how I can identify the required bottom reinforcement along the wall.


I am wondering If I can use panel cuts (xy plane) as seen below to identify reiquired bottom reinforcement along the wall:

You cannot display in plane bending in the wall (vertical panel) as a diagram. This sort of result is available in the Reduced Results for Panels table. You can use this set of internal forces for the reinforcement calculations of use the RC Slab (Panel) Required REinforcement module to calculate necessary amount of reinforcement in each of (mesh) surface element based on internal forces obtained for it.
