Wind Load Shear Wall Design Calculator

June 06, 2012

The Wind Load Shear Wall Calculator is a shear wall design calculator for the iPhone or iPod Touch. It is a tool for engineers, architects, and builders, as well as students to design shear walls to meet lateral wind load requirements on buildings.

The shear wall is calculated by inputting a few design parameters such as building length, building width, shear wall height, shear wall length, and horizontal load. The calculator gives the results of the shear stresses in the shear wall and chord force.

The Wind Load Shear Wall Calculator is based upon the basic engineering principals of shear and moment. It enables designing shear walls and checking shear loads quick and simple at your desk or anywhere. +
