12.2 Structural System Selection
Structural system selection, Response modification coefficient R, Deflection amplification factor Cd and Overstrength factor Ωo are controlled by user.
Design coefficients and factors selected by user in the analysis settings wizard and report results are checked automatically.
Cd = Deflection amplification factor
Ωo = Overstrength factor
R = Response modification coefficient
For reinforced concrete and steel structural systems, design coefficients and factors are defined in Table 12.1-2.
Reinforced concrete and steel structural systems are divided into three classes as given in Table 12.1-2 , which are structural systems with special ductility level, intermediate and ordinary .
ASCE 7-16 Wizard facilitates the selection of the design coefficients and factors by making the necessary directions according to the selected ductility level.
