Column and Beam Design for OCBF per AISC 341-16 with ideCAD

How does ideCAD design Ordinary Concentrically Braced frame columns and beams according to AISC 341-16?

  • ideCAD Structural automatically designs ordinary concentrically braced frame beams per AISC 341-16 and AISC 360-16.

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

In summary, the required strength of beams and their connections are determined with load combinations, including the overstrength seismic load.
