Internal Forces for SCBF per AISC 341-16 with ideCAD

How does ideCAD calculate internal forces for Special Concentrically Braced Frames according to AISC 341-16?

Internal forces to be used in the design of columns, beams, and braces are axial forces, shear forces, and bending moments, which are evaluated by considering the load combinations, including the earthquake loads with the overstrength seismic forces.

In summary, the members' required strength and connections are determined with load combinations, including the overstrength seismic factor.
