Wall openings on gravity walls. - Ram Modeler

Wall openings on gravity walls. - Ram Modeler

Good morning to all,

Is there a way to create "Wall Openings" on Gravity-Walls instead of Lateral-Walls?

I suppose Gravity-Walls are Load-Bearing Walls?, and Lateral-Walls are Shear-Walls?

Thank you for your help.

RE: Wall openings on gravity walls. - Ram Modeler

There is still no way to model openings in Gravity Walls. Gravity walls are not meshed into finite elements, so we never added the ability to model openings in them. You should probably make the walls lateral, then just disconnect them from the diaphragm if you really don't want those walls contributing to the lateral system.
