ACI 318-14 Chapter 17

I am working through the anchorage requirements for calculating the pullout capacity of headed anchors in concrete. My question relates to the reduction in hef allowed per Is this reduction only allowed when calculating the new ANc, or does it also apply to ANco? This causes the value of ANco to change by a large amount. It seems to me that it would not, but the code isn't very clear on this.

The hef change is for equations using it in - fig. R17.4.2.3 should help you understand the requirement
