Gravity Wall Issues

Gravity Wall Issues

Gravity Wall Issues

Good afternoon!,

I have a gravity-wall going into a column on one end and going into a lateral-wall on the other end.
The computer tells me that the wall has free-standing end where it connects to the column.

I have triple checked and the walls connects on both ends.

Why would the computer be telling me otherwise?


RE: Gravity Wall Issues

Seems like I have seen this post before. Any wall in the interior of the one-way deck needs to support a beam at the end of the wall in order for the tributary area calculations in RAM Steel to work. Where walls connect end to end, it's only the extreme end of of the walls that requires such a beam.
