Design software in ETA-conform version

With version 4.0 of the design software Jordahl Expert Punching Shear Reinforcement JDA for double-headed studs as reinforcement for punching shear resistance, Jordahl GmbH now offers a comfortable, ETA conform design solution (ETA-13/0136) for downloading free of charge. The new design software comprises the four modules “in-situ concrete floor,“ “foundation slab,” “floor plates for floor systems,” and “pad foundation.” The program covers both static and dynamic load cases. The load increase factor can be assumed on the basis of constant values according to ETA, fully plastic shear stress...
