The present k-factors are defined differently compared to the corresponding factors in draft 1 and ENV, and are called k1 and ki to avoid confusion with the previous factors ka and kb. The present k-factors express the relative flexibility of the restraint according to the definitions in figures 5.13 and 5.14. They are applicable to different types of flexible moment restraint, such as beams with different boundary conditions, flexible foundations etc.
