How does ideCAD design special moment frame columns and beams according to AISC 341-16?
ideCAD Structural automatically designs Special moment frame columns and beams per AISC 341-16 and AISC 360-16.
Internal forces to be used in the design of beams are axial forces, shear forces, and bending moments, which are evaluated by considering the load combinations, including the earthquake loads. In summary, the internal force results obtained from the analysis can be used directly in the design of relevant members.
Steel Element Design According to AISC 360-16 is explained in detail under Steel Element Design According to AISC 360-16 title.
