Fixed in Version15.04.00.00
 Defect Number:241727

Problem Description

Gravity concrete columns in structures assigned to SDC D, E, or F may have been designed incorrectly for shear.


ACI 318-11 requires gravity columns in high seismic areas subject to high axial loads to be designed using the provisions for transverse reinforcement in 21.6.4 and 21.6.5. These provisions were not checked by the program.
