How are maximum reactions calculated in BC Calc? (Reaction Summary vs. Bearing Supports)

BC Calc® software provides the maximum reaction for each load type in the Reaction Summary section, and then provides the controlling reaction per the building code prescribed load combinations in the Bearing Supports section.  (The two sets of reactions may differ. Use the Bearing Supports value when specifying hangers.)

Equation 16-11 controls in each case
