Masonry wall reactions along base

Masonry wall reactions along base

Masonry wall reactions along base

RISA 3d can display a masonry wall's base reaction at intervals along it's length, but where is the spreadsheet with this information?  The joint reactions spreadsheet provides only the total value.  Having access to these reactions would be tremendously helpful for designing wall footings.

RE: Masonry wall reactions along base

You can see that in the graphical display of the reactions. These can be displayed using the Joints tab of the Plot Options.  

The only drawback is that you cannnot see these for an Envelope solution.  Only single combinations or batch solutions.   

RE: Masonry wall reactions along base

Yeah, that was my point; the reactions can only be displayed, not accessed.  Having to look at the display and manually input each value (and not knowing the reaction spacing) for each load case would take a tremendous amount of time.  Is there a better way to access these reactions so they can be used in a spreadsheet?  They're obviously being calculated somewhere...
