Canadian Concrete (CSA A23) Wall Panel Design in RISA


The CSA A23.3-14 Concrete Design Code has been implemented into RISA-3D v20 and RISAFloor v16 for concrete wall panels. These walls can be designated and designed as either gravity only or lateral elements in RISAFloor when designing a complete building utilizing concrete walls. Prior to this release, only ACI codes were supported for the design of concrete wall panel elements.

  • Out-of-Plane Bending
  • Combined Axial + Bending
  • In-Plane Shear
  • Out-of-Plane Shear
  • Various Geometry & Rebar Checks per Clauses 14.1.7 & 14.1.8
