Negative Moment Capacity: Exclude/Include noncomposite moments from Mu

I was comparing the Strength I Design Moments for the Deck from the two Project Criteria options for Negative Moment Capacity (Exclude or Include noncomposite moments in Mu). It appears that the magnitude of difference between these two options is equal to 0.9*DC,girder. I expected the difference to be equal to 0.9*(DC,girder + DC,slab + DC,panel + DC,haunch) as these are all non-composite dead loads. Can you verify that PGSuper is calculating these moments correctly and/or clarify the intent of the Project Criteria options?

Thanks!

The intent is to remove all moments from Mu that do not cause direct tension in the deck reinforcement. We will get this fixed in the next release.

Thanks
