Model to Download
Question: Is it possible to transfer properties, such as the cross-section, or the surface thickness as well as the material of a surface, of an existing element to a new element?
Answer: When creating a new element (a member, a surface, a solid), there is a corresponding function at the bottom of the dialog box that allows you to import the properties of another element (see Image 01).
After activating the function, click the element from which you want to transfer the properties. In addition to the geometry and the material, other settings, such as eccentricities or stiffness modifications, will be transferred as well.

The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.

Which units are specified in the result display of the support reactions (kN or kN/m)? A note about this is missing in the graphic.
In the case that the support reactions are given in kN/m, for which distance does the value apply?
