For circular braces, multiply the above resistances by tt/4, replace b\ and h\ by d\ and replace Z>2 and U by q .

Only the overlapping brace member i need be checked. The brace member efficiency (i.e. the design resistance of the joint divided by the design plastic resistance of the brace member) of the overlapped brace member j should be taken as equal to that of the overlapping brace member.
