M. To add a repeat load case
To create a primary load case using combinations of previously defined primary load cases, use the following procedure.
A repeat load case is treated as a new primary load. That is, it is processed by the analysis engine rather than being a combination of results. It is therefore applicable for P-Delta analysis.
A repeat load is added similar to a load item within a primary load case.
Tip: This will add the load item to the currently selected load group selected in the program status bar.
- Select the Repeat Load tab. A list of the primary load cases which occur before the current primary load case is displayed.
- (Optional) Type a load Factor to use for each primary load case included in the repeat load definition.
- Click Add.
- Click Close.
