Describing Short/Head Shearwall

Short/head shearwall pieces connected to group shearwalls, which do not provide 1/6 size ratio in shearwall groups, can be added to the sherawall arm as a title. The short/head shearwall can added as a title to the corresponding shearwall arm of the group shearwall by selecting the Short/head shearwall option in the shearwall properties and naming the same group shearwall. When the Short head shearwall option is selected from the shearwall properties, 1/6 aspect ratio control is not performed.

Location of the Short/Head Shearwall Feature

You can access the short/head shearwall feature from the Shearwall Settings dialog.
