the analysis indicate that a number of the
components or elements are overdesigned by a factor
of 10 to 15 percent, the overdesigned components or
elements shall be redesigned, and the analysis
reported, unless it can be demonstrated that the
overdesign is cost-effective, or otherwise beneficial.
If the structural members are required to be
substantially stronger or stiffer, as compared to the
design for gravity loads, the designer should
consider the use of a supplementary structural
system; such as the use of shear walls or braced
frames to stiffen a flexible moment frame system.
