Wind Loads

The WL program is suitable to determine the distribution of horizontal forces acting on a building. The distribution takes place in accordance with the stiffness of the bracing components.

  • Reinforced concrete of strength class C12/15 to C100/115
  • Lightweight concrete LC 12/13 to LC 80/88
  • Steel grade B500A, B500B, BSt 420 S(A)
Structural system
  • Data can be entered both graphically and in tabular form.
  • Bracing components can be wall piers or columns. Wall piers consist of any number of straight wall sections connected to each other. Columns can have a rectangular or circular cross-section (solid or hollow).
  • A type of material can be assigned to each column and each part of the wall. Materials can either be selected from a catalogue for concrete or masonry or freely specified by the user.
  • Vertical loads can be entered for columns and piers. The self-weight is determined automatically. The vertical loads on a pier can consist of several components.
  • From the entered load cases, pre-defined superpositions can be generated.
  • From the vertical loads of the superposition, an inclination can be generated in accordance with
  • DIN 1045 7/88 eq. 5
  • DIN 1045-1 eq. 4 and eq. 5
  • EN 1992-1-1 eq. 5.1 and eq. 5.4
  • For wall piers, stresses can be determined with or without exclusion of tensile stresses.
  • In addition to the output of a load case, there is the possibility to put out the extreme stresses of all superpositions.
  • To assess whether a second-order analysis is necessary, the stiffening criterion is verified in accordance with the standards.
