Addition

Design:
For the result load cases, the combination equations for the selected verification method as well as limit states GEO/SLS/EQU/UPL can now be selected.
The lift-off check has been integrated.
For the calculation of characteristic substitute surfaces and load inclination angles, the SLS load cases are now used if GEO and SLS load cases have the same names. If no SLS load case is defined, SLS load cases are generated with reduction factors as before.

Addition

The font size for the reinforcement graphic can now be set separately from the other graphics.
The scale for the 3D graphics can be selected separately.
The approach of the intermediate bars of the column in the verification of the anchorage can be modified.
You can select whether the peak values are to be covered as an enveloping value progression according to booklet 240 for different reinforcement distributions or whether the distribution according to booklet 240 is simply to be redistributed in equal quantities to other reinforcement distributions.
The bond area for the connection reinforcement or the column reinforcement for the sleeve can now be determined automatically or specified.

Corrections

When calculating the overlap length in the sleeve or block foundation, the favorable effect of the transverse pressure could be applied twice under certain circumstances.
In the calculation with resultant load cases and earth loads, the earth load was applied with the wrong sign for the gaping joint and the simplified check in load cases with negative reduction factors for vertical loads.
In the case of the eccentric column, the horizontal stirrups in section B were drawn on the wrong side of the foundation.
In the wizard, the setting for the design values did not work.

Codes

Support of all 3 verification methods according to Eurocode 7, adjustable for all national annexes.
The partial safety factors and combination equations for the geotechnical verifications are now editable.

Codes

DIN 1054:2021 has been implemented.

02/21

Settlement calculations

In the settlement calculation, the output of the internal forces in the invert joint was corrected.

Correction

The determination of the anchorage lengths was corrected. For circumferentially distributed column reinforcement, the required reinforcement of the quiver for the overlap length was applied in every case. The detail output was corrected.

02/21

Codes

The Polish Eurocode has been implemented.

01/18

Correction

Correction at the calculation of the critical perimeter in case of larhe loading surfaces

Correction

- The punching resistance of the compression strut in the sector model in conjunction with a gaping joint was corrected.
- The calculation of earth loads above the foundation has been corrected.
- When reopening a position, the compression module was incorrectly imported.
- When receiving data from B5, the remarks text was overwritten.
- The graphic output of horizontal bars has been corrected.
- The manual selection of shear force check and punching check has been improved.
- Once the soil layer dialog has been left with Cancel, it will no longer react when it is called again.
- The output of area loads has been corrected.
- The output of lightweight concrete has been adjusted.
- The output of standing stirrups and horizontal bars in the pocket of eccentric columns was corrected.

02/17

Changes/Additions

- The settings of the units have been extended.
- Load compilation enabled.
- Sign convention is now according to a right-hand system. Optionally, the former convention can be reset.
- The program can now automatically take into account snow loads as extraordinary loads.
- Updating the load case table has been improved.
- Tool-tips added.
- The exceptional design situation can be optionally excluded from the soil engineering proofs.

Correction

- An additional load case self-weight is now only created if no permanent load case is available.
- A program failure in connection with load actions was eliminated.
- The colors of the required and existing reinforcement in the reinforcement dialog were interchanged.

01/17

Addition

The joint with was added in the property window of the pocket.

Correction

The check of the anchoring and overlap lengths is now linked to the text output of the reinforcement.

01/17

Correction

Check of safety against displacement was designed with a partial safety factor of 1.5 instead of 1.25 in the temporary situation.
In case of a failed base failure check there are more comments in the output.
Distance for additional shear design for inner columns is changed to 1.0 diameter instead of 1.5 diameter.

02/16

Addition

The fully plastic shear stress distribution is released.
