What is everyone's approach to RC cores. I normally build up the core in RAPT and design for Axial Load and Bending. I change the tension controlled and compression controlled reduction factors down to 0.4 and 0.3 except when I provide compression ties to the vertical reo, then I keep the factors at 0.8 and 0.6.
