Gravity Column Design in RCDC

RCDC can design Gravity Columns along with Lateral Columns as per ‘Ductile Design (Seismic Detailing)’ norms and performs the design accordingly. Gravity column design is conforming to following design codes,

  • IS 456+13920-2016
  • ACI 318M-2011
  • ACI 318M-2014
  • ACI318-2011
  • ACI 318-2014

When a RAM SS file is imported in RCDC, and user opts to design for Ductility, the frame type of columns (Gravity or Lateral) that will be defined in RAM File will be automatically assigned to each column
