As I've said before, the concrete, in fact, will have some tension capacity, but we discount it completely because it's just easier to say all right, we're just gonna count this one area and think of that as our sort of way of dealing with the compressive quality, and we're just gonna think of solely this steel, 'cause we're just gonna say that's gonna be easier to think about that then try to get all the little nuances of how a little bit more of the compression can come from a little bit of this part of the concrete and a little bit from that part of the steel can do it. There's no reason to be that detailed about it, it's actually just gonna cause problems if you do, because you just don't know for sure exactly what the tensile capacity of that concrete would be, and it just doesn't make sense to try to add it in. So, this stuff gets simplified down in order to sort of make a logical way of putting these calculations together.
