HTW+ | Timber Wall Diaphragms | Update Information
User-defined actions possible
Design of two-part Würth panel anchors
Undo/redo function improved
- New user interface connecting devices
- Connecting device glue added
- Nails with rectangular cross-section omitted
- Nails and cramps that overlap in the rib when arranged on both sides no longer cause an error message
- Output connecting devices adapted
- German national annex: NCI to 6.3.1 is checked, if necessary a note appears
- When calculating the dead weight of the ribs, the smaller weight is now used. Example: C24: 4.2 kN/m3 instead of 6.0 kN/m3. When loading old positions, the user-defined weight is set to 6.0 kN/m3 if no user-defined weight was entered
- Undo-Redo function improved
In case of different languages for input/output, some parts of the output were not translated.
- Optional reduction of the end rib tensile forces by loading internal ribs. The maximum number of relieving internal ribs can be selected. Design/anchoring/stabilising ribs.
- Output of the equivalent stiffness with length variations of this wall construction added.

DIN EN 1995-1-1/NA:2013-08
The names of boards materials will be displayed in output and selection in addition to short names.
In german NA, kmod of wind can be set to "short-term". Kmod as an average of "short-term" und "insantaneous" in german NA will be ignored.
Undue exploitations will be highlighted in addition with "!!".
With sheets on only one side after reloading a position: You could not edit the fasteners.
The grafic of decisive support reactions of combinations was not embedded in output.
These items are corrected.
Italy: UNI EN 1995-1-1/NTC:2008
If you choose special rules of german NA for combinations (windzone 3 and.4, Earthquake in BW), they will be written in output.
In some cases with elements side by side, the effective pressed Area Aef was considered too large.
