How does ideCAD control the ductility according to AISC 341-16?
ideCAD Structural controls and reports brace ductility ratio automatically.
The ductility control is done and reported for brace members of SCBF. The brace’s effective net area must not be less than the brace’s gross area. The required strength of bracing members with respect to the limit state of tensile rupture on the net section is the expected brace strength.
