According to Section 12 of MStower user manual - Member checking, Member checks to TIA-222-G: Effective slenderness ratios KL/r are determined in accordance with Tables 4-3 and 4-4, using member classification and continuity information generated during tower building.
Is this calculated automatically in MStower in all possible cases?
When I define two bolts for x bracing connection result for value of K should be approximately 0.9. Can this be defined somehow manually in geometry input?
Thanks in advance.
Please find attached a verification check on the slenderness value used by MStower for members 2227, 2228, 2229, 2230 from your model.
