Dubuque, IA, November 18, 2013 -Digital Canal Corporation, a leading provider of professional structural engineering and design software, announces the release of QuickWall – Version 8.
QuickWall (Retaining Wall) includes new and updated engineering design codes, ACI 530 -11 and IBC 2012/ACI 530-11. QuickWall contains the ability to design the stem (main wall) using either Ultimate Strength Design ACI 530-11 or Working Stress Masonry Design IBC 2012. The footing is designed using Ultimate Strength Design, ACI 318-11.
QuickWall can design walls constructed of cast-in-place concrete or masonry. These can be cantilevered or supported on the top and bottom (i.e. a basement wall). Because all of the footing components (toe, heel and key) are optional, QuickWall can design those irregular walls that other programs cannot. Another key to QuickWall’s versatility is the wide range of loads it supports – in addition to lateral soil pressure, loads can be placed virtually any place/direction on the wall or soil.
QuickWall 8 has been tested to perform optimally in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems. The latest version of QuickWall (8) incorporates the latest advanced Microsoft technologies, including to-scale graphics that update in real-time with every change in input. Reports automatically display in Microsoft Word, or the word processor of your choice.
