# How Can I Subtract Beam Capacity Ratio Less Than 1?

Three possible solutions for subtracting the beam capacity ratio less than 1 are described below.

### Possible Solutions

From the Beam Parameters window , you can activate the

*"Calculate the required reinforcement using the fiber model with" option.*

From the Beam Reinforced Concrete window, reinforcement can be increased or beam dimensions can be enlarged.

Detailed information of the capacity ratios in beams can be seen in the

*Capacity design*tab of the*Beam Reinforced Concrete*window . Using this section, it can be seen in which section of the beam, under which combination effect, the capacity ratio is exceeded and can be intervened appropriately.
