Walls to slab fixing

Walls to slab fixing

Walls to slab fixing

Hi there,

I noticed that I'm getting a fixation moment with the wall-to-slab connection, and it seems that no matter how I change the slab stiffness, the moment persists.

I believe that the moment is caused by the slab's fixation to the wall, which restricts the wall's moment at the slab level, and this does make sense. However, I'm unsure of how to consider this moment in the slab. Should we ignore it and design the wall for both moments by adding the top and bottom moment to the section?

RE: Walls to slab fixing

you can't ignore it. Try using edge releases, it's a bit of effort to find the slab edge that requires release, but that will create a pin along the slab edge.

Ok thanks.
I contacted the sofware supplier and they asked to modify the slab to membrane which I did and still no sucess

RE: Walls to slab fixing

Same question, still looking for an answer. Pls help if anyone masters on it. Thanks
