I know you have asked this before, but unfortunately I do not have any idea where this validation f-d curve (fig. 54.4) comes from in TD54 example. Unfortunately I have not done this TD example so I can not provide any more help and details.

As I have said, when analysing RC structure (so when you do own real examples related to academic or other work, etc..) use the workflow I have referred to. That is the only advice I can give.

Thank you
