    • Beam characteristic (Non-composite) and Column characteristic with fabrication type of Plated and Plated I sections only.

    • Design of Class 4 slender sections is supported for axial compression and for Flexure.

    • Moment Minor + High shear is beyond scope as is Slender section + High shear.

    • Connection details between the flange plate and web plate are not considered.
