I perform joint checking by selecting "LRFD2 - LRFD API 2ND EDITION CODE". I notice that the STRN UC in "joint can summary" report is calculated based on the original API method, not the minimum capacity method indicated in API-2A-LRFD-2nd-2019.
The following snapshot is from SACS's manual - jointcan.pdf.
How can I get the strength UC based on method 2 and API LRFD 2nd? Thank you so much.
Thank you for your question.
JointCan does use the minimum capacity method for API LRFD 2nd. We need to look at your input. Could you please raise Service Ticket and attach the files including the runx file there for us to start the investigation?
