4.2.3 Beam Penetrations
All openings in frame-beam webs have a depth less than one-fourth of the beam depth and are located in the center half of the beams.
For conforming buildings, the evaluator may consider this condition as mitigated, and no calculations are necessary. The deficiency is in the shear capacity of the beam. Check that the shear capacity of the beam is sufficient to develop the flexural plastic hinge. If the shear capacity is insufficient to develop the flexural capacity of the member, use the R value for ordinary frames.
