Tapered Section Design Problem

Question:
I want to do tapered design of pier cap section. we are facing problem in design of tapered section. Please tell us how to do it.

Answer:Dear User,

Tapered section is not supported for Design.
Alternatively what could be done is as indicated in the image attached




The Tapered section could be modified into a regular rectangular section and then could be checked for design of the critical locations.
Doing this would not affect the analysis result and hence the Design is pertained to those results with the tapered section considered.
