Wish list RC-Structural elements

Dear Colleagues

 

I hope the following options to be added to wish list:

 

- (RC-Walls)

 

  • (Typical Reinforcement option as RC - Beams &columns).
  • Reinforcement Generation without Edge reinforcement using ACI318-08M.

-(Continuous Footing)

 

  • (Typical Reinforcement option as RC - Beams &columns).

- (RC-Beams)

 

  • ( Possibility to use layers for top reinforcement and bottom reinforcement in typical reinforcement option).

-(RC-Columns)

 

  • (Possibility to use bundle system and spiral stirrups in typical reinforcement option).

- Seismic (Equivalent lateral force method -ASCE7-10/IBC2009)

 

  • (Possibility to select and control the percentage of load type which is used to calculate the seismic forces because some codes such as(ASCE7-10)doesn't consider live loads only in the storage areas (only 25%)).

 Very Useful.

Thanks

I have added them to the wish list. Mind that you can generate reinforcement in bundles.

 

- Seismic (Equivalent lateral force method -ASCE7-10/IBC2009)

 

Available.

 

  • (Possibility to select and control the percentage of load type which is used to calculate the seismic forces because some codes such as(ASCE7-10)doesn't consider live loads only in the storage areas (only 25%)).

Would it be just enough to define seismic combination with 0.25 load factor for live loads?
