Strong column controls are given as a subtitle in the column report.

In structural systems consisting of only frames or a combination of walls and frames, it is checked whether the sum of the bearing strength moments of the columns joining each column-beam node is at least 20% greater than the total bearing strength moments of the beams joining that node. (M

_{ra}+ M_{rü}) ≥ 1.2 (M_{ri}+ M_{rj})In case of Nd≤ 0.10 A

_{c}f_{ck in}both of the columns joining the node point , or at the nodal points of the top floor of single-storey buildings and multi-storey buildings, or if the curtain where the beams are stuck working like a column in a weak direction, it is not considered that the above condition is not fulfilled. Information is written in the control column of the report with the terms**Nd≤ 0.10 A**._{c}f_{ck}or Top floorIn case of N

_{d}≥ 0.10 A_{c}f_{ck in}one of the columns joining the node point and there are columns that do not satisfy the condition (M_{ra}+ M_{rü}) ≥ 1.2 (M_{ri}+ M_{rj}) in the system, in the earthquake direction considered, in any i'th floor of the building If the condition alpha_{i}= V_{is}/ V_{ik}is satisfied, it is allowed not to_{meet}(M_{ra}+ M_{rü}) ≥ 1.2 (M_{ri}+ M_{rj}) in some columns above and / or below the relevant floor .

Columns satisfying the condition N

_{d}≤ 0.10 A_{c}f_{ck}can be used in the calculation of V_{is}even if they do not satisfy the condition (M_{ra}+ M_{rü}) ≥ 1.2 (M_{ri}+ M_{rj}) .If the equation alpha

_{i}= V_{is}/ V_{ik}is_{met}0.70 <1 / alpha_{i}<1.00 in the interval (M_{ra}+ M_{rü}) ≥ 1.2 (M_{ri}+ M_{rj}), it is The bending moments and shear forces are multiplied by the (1 / alpha_{i}) ratio.If any floor does not meet the condition, the user will be warned by the program.

Information on strong column control in the program is displayed in the Weak Column Information tab in the Column Reinforced Concrete dialog. The columns that do not satisfy the (M

_{ra}+ M_{rü}) ≥ 1.2 (M_{ri}+ M_{rj}) condition are marked in the**ZK**column in the Columns tab in the same dialog .
