My columns are way to big. I got a simple construction and i feel like the columns iam using are to big. after i have calulated the construction i go to "steel/aluminium design" and check the result. it says that my columns have ratio of 0,96 when iam using KR 508x25, but someone else made the exactly same construction and got KR 219x25.. is it something i have forgotten to check?
Try to compare if in both models you have the same set of internal forces,material and set of design parameters assigned to this column. Mind to check the releases as well as section orientation in the model.
