Introduced last year, the Masonry Partition Wall Software was a huge hit; now additional features are available in the new Version 2.
The program is designed to make engineering masonry partition walls easy, fast and code compliant while doing a rigorous engineering analysis using Allowable Stress Design. Options can be changed and compared quickly, and easily, permitting the designer to optimize the wall system in minutes.
The software is accessed through the IMI website and is available for use at no charge.
The new Version 2 opens with a redesigned input sheet including a scroll bar and pull downs. An interactive ‘calculate-as-you-go’ feature illustrates data input on a structural line drawing making input checking simple and visual. It calculates the status of the wall as entries are made on the input sheet showing if the wall is ‘Good’ or Not Good’ – again a quick and visual way to check the design in seconds.
