AISC Code Checks Under RISA 3D 9.1

AISC Code Checks Under RISA 3D 9.1

AISC Code Checks Under RISA 3D 9.1

Josh:

Has this unity check feature been eliminated? The option for a printout no longer seems available on either the Results page, or within the Report folder listing.

If not, how do I activate it, or where is it? I did not have to hunt for it before.

FYI, the members being checked are either steel square tubes, or unequal single angles.

I am also using FRP members, but there is no code check feature available for those members.

RE: AISC Code Checks Under RISA 3D 9.1

This may be a dumb suggestion, but what code are you trying to check? If AISC 13th, then you need to have P-delta turned on in your load combinations.

Also, if it's a compression member with kL/r > 200, you'll have to check a box in your preferences to tell RISA to ignore the slenderness ratio and check it anyway.

And if neither of these is the issue, I apologize in advance.

Well, it's checking by the 14th Edition and P Delta is turned on.

As for the kL/r, I will have to check the angles, but it should not affect the columns with the sizes I am using, and nothing is printing for those.

The thing that bugs me here, is that the code check output option is not even available, where it used to be an automatic. I must be missing something...

Finally got it - came out under "Design Results" in the "Results" window list. Don't know hot I got it. Maybe it was always there. Heck, it's Friday. I need a beer.

Wow, I totally misunderstood what you were asking. Oops.

On the bright side, I'm glad you found the unity checks.

And it's actually RISA3D Version 12.
