Shearwalls 2019

WoodWorks® Shearwalls, design wood frame structures up to 6 stories. At the push of a button, wind and seismic loads are generated, forces are distributed, and shear walls are designed.

      • Automatically generates wind loads following the Directional or Envelope procedure in ASCE 7

      • Automatically generates seismic loads following the Equivalent Lateral Force procedure in ASCE 7

      • Distributes lateral loads to shear lines according to flexible and rigid diaphragm analyses

      • Distributes lateral loads within shear lines based on shear wall stiffness or capacity

      • Implements limitations and provisions for structural irregularities in ASCE 7

      • Designs full-height wall segments, force-transfer shear walls, and perforated shear walls with wood, gypsum, fiberboard and lumber sheathing

      • Designs shear walls for sheathing, nailing and hold-down connections

      • Optimizes shear wall design by iterating and automatically selecting the most economical sheathing and nailing patterns

      • Designs components & cladding for out-of-plane wind loads

      • Calculates shear wall deflection using “3-term” or “4-term” deflection equations

      • Checks story drift for wind and seismic

      • Determines anchor bolt, collector and force-transfer strap forces

      • Allows additional manual load inputs

      • Import .pdf, .bmp, .wmf and .emf files from AutoCAD as templates for floor layouts

Transparent reporting of results, including:

Did you know? Modelling a structure is quick and easy: start from a blank slate or use a pdf or wmf file as a template. See our video showing how typical buildings can be modeled in minutes!
