Hey, I have concrete columns and a flat slab system. I applied the live load reduction in the modeler to the concrete column. It looks like the concrete module does not recognize this reduction. My live load is 80 psf, and trib. area to the column is about 900ft^2. Total live load=80*900/1000=72kip. The column design report shows: 1.2*332+1.6*73=515kips; no live load reduction. I want to know how I get the load reduction factor in concrete design, and foundation design in RAMFoundation automatically. Thanks.
I think you want 50%, not 0.50%. Also make sure the loading type is reducible.
