Provides analysis of reinforced concrete shear walls:

  • strength and ductility in accordance with NZS 3101:2006
  • doubly-symmetric: rectangular with optional flanged or enlarged ends

V1.3.1  Date: 2/5/2023

  • Add maximum shear stress limit check for nominally ductile wall design
  • Minor improvements to calculation output
  • Fix out-of-memory error occurring during loading of some data files
  • Improve auto-spacing of reo for small end zone

V1.3  Date: 2/2/2023

  • Changes to overstrength shear calculations
  • Allow nominally-ductile singly-reinforced walls
  • Include sliding shear check
  • Update reporting for walls with high axial loads
  • Report location of resultant forces
  • Fix treatment of Cl
  • Update reo layout algorithm when end zone spacing is different to mid-region
  • Minor changes to some nomenclature
  • Allow optional tolerances when checking limits
  • Improve ‘sanity’ checks
  • Fix out-of-memory error when bar spacing is zero
  • Improve fit of Gen-Wall graphics for squat rectangular wall
  • Improve diagram annotation and layout for some edge-case scenarios
  • Custom PDF headers
  • Improve mouse navigation of Results screen
  • Improved indication of user data changes

V1.2  Date: 1/7/2021

  • Allow user specification of overstrength shear demand
  • Fix issue with setting boundary element internal bars with large number of rows
  • Minor changes to calculation output

V1.1.1  Date: 29/9/2020

  • Improved ‘sanity’ checks for data input

V1.1  Date: 6/7/2020

  • Questions have been raised regarding the appropriateness of singly-reinforced rectangular walls subject to reverse cyclic loading and likely instability under load reversal.  As this is currently being debated at industry level, the singly-reinforced wall option has been removed from Gen-Wall in the interim
  • Batch/auto mode

V1.0  Date: 28/5/2020

  • Initial upload
  • (Build 220, 11/6/2020) Fix implementation of Eq 11-29 check
