The punching shear analysis is directly linked to any joints that has been defined as a slab support of type column in the concrete tab of a joint properties. By defining the geometrical properties of a slab supporting joint, the program will determine the shear perimeter around the support.

Support properties can be defined or edited manually or automatically calculated by using the Recalculate slab supports function for the associated slab perimeter. When openings are close to the punching zone, they are considered in the effective punching perimeter.

Variable anchorage slip in wood shearwalls

To enhance productivity of GSE Timber software’ users, the Anchorage Elongation Method can be defined as variable (tension only) and variable (tension and compression). The anchorage slip is calculated at each iteration according to the tension efforts at the anchorage locations.

Fatigue limit state

HSE users can efficiently set and edit all required fatigue parameters for the structure allowing to consider all applicable fatigue loads such as Galloping, Natural Wind Gust, or Truck-Induced Gust.


Live load reduction

The live load reduction is available for the GSE steel, concrete, aluminum, and wood modules. The live load reduction will be applied to the columns of the structure.
Live loads can be automatically reduced according to the selected method. The software computes the live load reduction factor (LLRF) that will reduce the effective axial compression force in columns.

Fire resistance of wood elements

The resistance limit states, under fire conditions, are calculated for large cross-section wood elements. To improve the productivity of GSE users, the elements cross-sections are automatically reduced during the limit state checks.
