Sorry, I read too fast and did not pick up on the
Class A limitation, it is pretty rare to actually have a class A
condition.
I do not know about Enercalc, I don't use it.
However it is not necessarily conservative to assume c + Ktr to be 2.5. If
there is a difference using the same equation I would assume this is where the
difference will be found. Review the commentary in ACI and you will see
that using 2.5 is actually a max reduction, and that 1.3 to 1.5 is more typical
and is the basis of the simplified method. Unless you are intending to
review every single case I would use the simplified values as a lower
bound.
What value is Enercalc assuming for their
computation?
