Cracked or uncracked, you still have to deal with the ductile failure or divide the capacity by 2.5 in a moderate or high seismic region.

Assuming concrete is cracked, you are absolutely correct.

All this happens on the background of the 100% absence of any reported failures.

What a joke.

I feel better now.
