The "Material" frame allows to enter material parameters. The input field in the upper part of the frame serves to specify the wall unit weight.
If the wall is made from concrete, the program offers two options:
- The "Catalog" button opens the "Catalog of materials" dialog window, where required material can be selected.
- The "User defined" button opens the "Editor of material", which allows to input the specification of material parameters manually by user.
If the wall is made from stone masonry, material characteristics of masonry units according to the selected standard are specified in the "Materials and standards" tab:
- EN 1996-1-1 - strength of masonry units fb, mortar origin and strength of mortar fm
- GB 50003-2011 - type of masonry units, strength grade of stone, strength grade of mortar
If the "User values" button is checked, it is possible for the users to input their own defined material characteristics.
