D8.B.8 Code Checking

The purpose of code checking is to verify whether the specified section is capable of satisfying applicable design code requirements. The code checking is based on the IS:800 (1984) requirements.

Forces and moments at specified sections of the members are utilized for the code checking calculations. Sections may be specified using the BEAM parameter or the SECTION command. If no sections are specified, the code checking is based on forces and moments at the member ends.

The code checking output labels the members as "PASS" or "FAIL". In addition, the critical condition (applicable IS:800 clause no.), governing load case, location (distance from the start) and magnitudes of the governing forces and moments are also printed out.

Refer to D1.B.1.3 Code Checking for general information on Code Checking. Refer to TR.49 Code Checking Specification for details the specification of the Code Checking command.
