Masonry Bearing Design in Tekla Tedds

August 20, 2018
This video demonstrates the Masonry bearing design calculation to the Eurocode. The calculation checks the bearing design of concentrated vertical loads and allows multiple loads to be applied to a single masonry wall panel. The calculation checks the localized bearing resistance of the masonry directly beneath the load and will determine if a spreader is required. The spreader can be designed as either a concrete padstone or a steel spreader plate. The calculation also checks the stability of the wall for mainly vertical loading, at the half height beneath the concentrated load. Where multiple loads are sufficiently close together their combined effects will be determined.
