Dear sir, as per the clause 12.12.1 of IS 800 : 2007 the fixed column base need to be designed considering 1.2 times the plastic moment capacity of column section.. Whether practically is it required and I have reffered sample calculations from the website osdag in which the above clause is not taken into account.. Please guide in this regard
Dear Osdag user,
Osdag performs design and detailing checks for general requirements (not for earthquake applications, as of now). The referred clause is for the design requirement with respect to earthquake loads and has not been incorporated so far in any of the Osdag versions. The design and detailing of structures for earthquake applications will be made available through new releases in the future.
