Line Hinge of Slab-Wall Connection

I would like to connect my masonry wall to a reinforced concrete slab. What is the best way to create a line hinge?


Answer:

The Masonry Design add-on allows you to automatically determine the stiffness of your wall-slab hinge. The diagrams were determined as part of the research project DDmaS - "Digitizing the design of masonry structures" and are derived from the standard.

Define a line hinge on the connection line of both surfaces and activate the slab-wall connection.


You can now enter your parameters in the Slab-Wall Connection tab. Then, click the Regenerate [...] button.

The determined diagrams are displayed subsequently.
