Retaining Wall Design and Wall Panel Design

Whether it’s an independent structure or part of a building, Tedds ensures easy retaining wall design, as well as designing types of wall panels. You can count on Tedds’ automation for fast and accurate structural and civil calculations and forget about time-consuming hand calculations and spreadsheets. Tedds has an easy to inspect, quality assured library of multi-material code compliant calculations for wall panel and retaining wall design.

Retaining Walls

Retaining Wall Analysis and Design

Retaining wall analysis and designThis retaining wall calculation for both Eurocode and USA reliably checks the analysis, or analysis and design of cast-in-place reinforced concrete or masonry retaining walls. The wall stem may be either cantilevered or propped and may feature either stepped or inclined faces. The retaining wall base may also be propped. Masonry stem design includes unreinforced as well as pocket, hollow or cavity reinforced masonry options.

 

 

Gabion Retaining Wall Analysis and Design

Gabion retaining wallThis retaining wall Eurocode calculation checks the stability of a gabion retaining wall against sliding and overturning, and determines the maximum and minimum base pressures beneath the wall.

 

 

 

Steel Sheet Piling

Tedds supports both Eurocodes and USA Steel Sheet Piling codes.

Eurocodes

The Eurocode calculation checks the stability of either a cantilever or a propped/tied steel sheet pile wall by determining the required minimum embedment length and checks the selected pile capacity where applicable. Where appropriate the calculation will determine the tie/prop force.

In accordance with EN1993-5, EN1997 and the national annex for the UK, Ireland, Singapore, Finland, Sweden, Norway or the recommended Eurocode values.

USA

The calculation for USA checks the stability of either a cantilever or a propped/tied steel sheet pile wall by determining the required minimum embedment length and calculating the maximum moment and shear forces. Where appropriate the calculation will determine the tie/prop force.

The design can be carried out by specifying combinations where partial factors are used to determine design values for the soil and loading or to the method prescribed in U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Design of sheet pile walls.

 

Wall Panels

Concrete

Cast-in-Place Reinforced Concrete Wall Design

RC Wall designThis Reinforced Concrete Wall Eurocode calculation quickly checks the design of braced and unbraced, slender and non-slender walls.

 

You can use the calculation in three ways:

 

1. To check the capacity of the specified wall against the specified axial load (including tension) and minor axis end moments

2. To produce the interaction diagram about the minor axis for the specified wall

3. To determine the design bending moments for the specified wall, axial load and end moments

 

Tilt-Up Concrete Wall Design

This calculation for USA and Australian code speeds up the design of reinforced concrete tilt-up panel with up to two openings (doors or windows). The panel is “check designed” for both the lifting sequence (assuming uncracked) and for in-position (assuming cracked) for relevant dead, live, wind and seismic loads. Vertical loads may be applied to the top of the clear height of the panel and may be located eccentric to the centerline thus inducing bending moments into the panel. Lateral wind or seismic loads may also be applied resulting in further bending moments.
In accordance with ACI 318-14, ACI 318-11, ACI 318-08 and ACI 318-05.

 

Timber

Stud Design

Timber stud designThis Timber Stud Eurocode calculation quickly checks the design of a solid wood or glulam stud subjected to uniformly distributed loads and point loads. Permanent, imposed and wind loads can be defined depending on which load duration you select. The studs may be braced in the weaker axis by a suitable sheathing fixed to one or both faces, or by the use of dwangs tied into a bracing system or support.

 

 

Frame Racking Panel Design

Timber frame racking panel designTedds supports Frame Racking Panel Design with both Eurocode and USA calculations. The Eurocode calculation efficiently determines the structural shear capacity of a sheathed frame wall panel in platform timber frame buildings acting as elements of a lateral wind force resisting system. The design is in accordance with the design provision contained within the Published Document 6693-1:2012, UK Non-Contradictory Complementary Information to Eurocode 5: Design of Timber Structures.

The wood shear wall design (NDS) for USA determines the capacity of wood structural panel and lumber sheathed shear walls acting as elements of a lateral force resisting system in accordance with the design provision contained within the ANSI/AF&PA Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic. It allows both allowable stress design (ASD) and load resistance factor design (LRFD) using either the segmented or perforated shear wall design methods.

 

Member Design (NDS)

Wood member design NDSWhen you link Tedds to Tekla Structural Designer, you can design wood members according to the National Design Specification for wood construction.

 

 

 

 

Masonry

Wall Panel Design

Masonry Wall Panel DesignThis Wall Panel Eurocode calculation quickly checks the design of masonry wall panels and sub panels of single-leaf or cavity wall construction, either with or without bed joint reinforcement and with or without masonry piers, subjected to horizontal and/or vertical loading.

 

 

 

Bearing Design

Masonry bearing designThis Bearing Design Eurocode calculation effectively checks the bearing design of concentrated vertical loads and allows multiple loads to be applied to a single masonry wall panel. The calculation quickly checks the localized bearing resistance of the masonry directly beneath the load and will determine if a spreader is required. The spreader can be designed as either a concrete padstone or a steel spreader plate.
 

The calculation also checks the stability of the wall for mainly vertical loading, at the half height beneath the concentrated load. Where multiple loads are sufficiently close together, their combined effects will be determined.
