Basement Masonry Wall


The MWK+ program is used to perform structural safety analyses of basement walls loaded by earth pressure. A main feature of the software is the comprehensive calculation of earth pressure acting on the basement wall. The user can select among the structural systems of an individual wall and a basement wall with a storey on top. In this case, it is always assumed that the wall to be verified is covered on its total top surface by a solid floor and supports it. The user can define storey floors as being supported either on the left, on the right or on both sides. In addition, cantilevered floor slabs (for balconies) are definable. Alternatively, you can define a ring beam for bracing purposes.
