In proof of the plastic load capacity I get a magnification factor and a utilization reserve. Which value is crucial?

Answer

The magnification factor 'alpha plastic': If you multiply all internal forces with this coefficient, the plastic load capacity of the cross section is achieved. The utilization reserve only describes the proportion of simplex elements that are not used plastically.
