RCDC uses the formula of column for the “Minimum Eccentricity Calculation” (in IS code), though it is different for shear walls as per Clause: 32.2.2 of IS 456-2000

Clause 32.2 in IS 456-2000, is for Empirical Design Method of walls. Clause 32.3 is for design of walls subjected to horizontal and vertical loads and same has been followed in design of wall in RCDC.
