Reducible Live load

Reducible Live load

(OP)
Hi,
I have a question, if you apply Reducible Live Load in Etabs Model 2016, does the output of column Reaction Forces also Reduces?

Thanks

RE: Reducible Live load

I'm assuming you're referring to 'joint reactions' or similar tables. The answer is no. Live load reduction is only performed when you run design checks. For columns, live load reduction would only shown up in the 'column design forces' table.

RE: Reducible Live load

No it is not affected.
