Application of Overstrength Factor (220.127.116.11)
In building load-bearing systems, the Strength Excess Coefficient D is calculated automatically in all elements at appropriate internal forces.
The Strength Excess Coefficient D is applied differently for each element. Application D is explained in detail in the following titles for reinforced concrete elements.
Polygonal Cross-Section Shearwall Design
The cases where Strength Excess Coefficient D is applied can be seen in the design strength report of all elements. In the sample column report below, it is clearly seen at what forces the Strength Excess Coefficient D is applied.
