For combined member capacities the 14th Edition uses Eq H1-1a nd 1b but no limiting equation as per the 9th Edition i.e Eq H1-2. Checking some columns that have H1-1a < 1.0 but reviewing capacities based on combined stress gives a resultant stress exceding Yield. Structure is a no sway frame with beta1 = 0.6 and beta2 approx 0. Is this acceptable when using the LRFD 14th Edition.
