# Modeling of Shearwalls.

Rectangular reinforced concrete shearwalls are structural system elements defined according to *Codes*. In the geometry control and the select report, the ratio of the length in the cross section to its thickness is *automatically* checked and a warning is given if there is an unsuitable situation for control.

In reinforced concrete walls with cross-section shape I, T, L, U or C, the ratio of the length of at least one shearwall arm in each direction to its thickness should obey the rule. Otherwise, the structural system element will not be counted as a shearwall in that direction. If this condition is not met in the geometry control, a warning is given *automatically* and the error is listed on the first page of the reports.

### Rectangular Reinforced Concrete Walls

Rectangular reinforced concrete shearwalls are structural system elements defined according to *Codes*. In the geometry control and the select report, the ratio of the length in the cross section to its thickness is *automatically* checked and a warning is given if there is an unsuitable situation for control.

### Polygon Shear Walls

In reinforced concrete walls with cross-section shape I, T, L, U or C, the ratio of the length of at least one shearwall arm in each direction to its thickness should obey the rule. Otherwise, the structural system element will not be counted as a shearwall in that direction. If this condition is not met in the geometry control, a warning is given *automatically* and the error is listed on the first page of the reports.
