- Verify the shear resistance of shell members based on the Annex LL of Eurocode 2.
From the main menu, select [Design] tab > [Type : RC Design] > [Mesh] group > [Meshed Design] > [Shell Shear Checking]
Select a desired load combination for which the shell shear checking will be performed. If 'All Combination' is selected, the shell shear checking will be performed for all the load combinations and the results for the critical load combination will be provided for each element.
Select a desired smoothing option for the design of shell.
Element : Display the design results using the internal forces calculated at each node of the element.
Avg. Nodal : Display the design results using the average internal nodal forces of the contiguous elements sharing common nodes.
Element : Depending on the selected option above (Element or Avg.Nodal), design shear forces are determined without averaging within the width.
Width : Depending on the selected option above (Element or Avg.Nodal), design shear forces are determined by taking average of the shear forces within the specified width.
Select to check the flexural design results for shell.
v_Edo : Display the shear forces per unit width of the plate element.
Shear Resistance : Display the shear resistance per unit width of the plate element..
Resistance Ratio : Display the ratio of the design shear force to the shear resistance.
Design Result/Text Output : Generate the detail design report in a text format. If you select all elements, the design results for the worst case will be reported. If you select one element, the design results for the selected element will be reported.
Design Result Table: Generate the summary table of design forces.
