Structures to provide the appropriate amount of ductility in the corresponding ductility classes.
Automatic capacity design capability for
beam, column, wall and beam-column joint
EN 1998-1: 2004 (DCM/DCH)
NTC2008 (CD “B”, CD “A”)
Design action effects are calculated in accordance with the capacity design rule. Special provision for ductile primary seismic walls is considered.
Detailing for local ductility is considered.
