In RF‑/STEEL EC3, I activated gamma_M1 for the calculation of cross-section resistance as I want to cover the stability analyses with the second-order analysis and imperfections. However, the cross-section analysis for my design is performed with 1.0 in Germany. Why?

Answer

You have probably not selected the correct National Annex in General Data of the module. For example, if "CEN" is used, the recommendations of this standard are used and gamma_M1 is set to 1.0.

Please select the correct National Annex (see figure).
