6.5.004

Released: 2022-02-23

  • Fix: A warning message has been added in the unusual case when the horizontal force is larger than the resulting vertical force which means that the ground pressure capacity will be zero (case 106328).

  • Fix: Due to an error that was introduced in the latest version 6.5.003 the shear force was somewhat underestimated because the shear check section where placed the distance of the cover to long from the edge of the column/wall which has been corrected (case 118282).

6.5.000

Released: 2020-10-23

  • Fix: A minor printout error where the value Mok used in the settlement calculation in the result table was presented with the value Mlk instead, which is corrected (case 35618).
  • Fix: When for the settlement calculation E-modulus was used the header still showed Peak resistance which is corrected (case 37442).
  • Fix: When for the settlement calculation E-modulus was used the header still showed Peak resistance which is corrected (case 37442).

  • Fix: If the  partial factor for bearing Gamma R;v was larger than 1.0 the ground capacity was somewhat overestimated. This could be the case if Design Approach 1 or 2 is used according to EC7. For Sweden Design approach 3 is used where GammaR;v = 1.0.  This has been corrected (case 76277).
  • Fix: The sliding capacity was somewhat overestimated for non cohesion soil as the characteristic friction slope was used in the capacity calculation instead of the design value (case 89959).
  • Fix: The manual has been updated (case 92267).

6.3.010

Released: 2013-08-28

  • Available anchorage lengths are according to EC2 9.8.2.2 as a simplification calculated with a distance to the first crack as x = h/2. This results in many cases in very conservative values. Together with Swedish EC experts we have therefore for the Swedish annex implemented a way to calculate the distance x similar to the formula in "Betonghandboken" 6.9:235 (5a) with fctd according to EC2 12.3.1 and alfa ct,pl according to the Swedish annex.
  • A check meant to stop the calculation for edge and corner columns also made it impossible to calculate some examples with interior columns which have been corrected.
  • A message about no license for settlement will no longer be displayed as this module is optional.
  • Required crack widths for the Swedish Annex was earlier according to EC2 standard but are now corrected to be according to table 7.1 in the Swedish Annex.
  • It is from now possible to also define a vct value for the concrete where relevant.
  • The following concrete qualities C28/35, C32/40, C54/65 and C58/70 have been added.

  • The punching calculation can at present only handle interior columns for EC2 and an error message has been added when this is not the case.
  • The punching calculation can at present for EC2 only handle columns with a breath- length ratio < 2 as for such columns punching should be checked along the total critical perimeter. An error message when this is not the case has been added.
  • The program calculated crack widths without first comparing the current stress against the crack stress which is corrected.
  • A text belonging to the old Swedish code was wrongly displayed in the EC shear check which is corrected.
