Repeat Load tab
Used to add load combinations in STAAD.Pro which will be used directly by the analysis engine.
Refer to GS. Load Types in STAAD.Pro for additional information.
Used to create a primary load case using combinations of previously defined primary load cases. A Repeat Load is treated as a new primary load. Therefore, a P-Delta analysis will reflect correct secondary effects. Load Combinations, on the other hand, algebraically combine the results such as displacements, member forces, reactions and stresses of previously defined primary loadings evaluated independently.
Used to include Reference Loads in a Primary Load case here.
A reference load is defined using the Create Reference Load dialog. Load specifications are then added to the Reference Load entry in the Load & Definition dialog for later reference.
|Available Load Cases||All reference load cases that are defined for the structure are listed here.|
|Referenced Load list||
Loads included in this list make up the Reference Load.
The Factorcell is used to specify a factor with which the selected reference load case is to be multiplied. The resulting values are utilized in the primary load definition
Used to define a Notional Load from Primary Load Cases and / or Reference Load Cases. These are used for direct analysis.
|Primary Load Cases||All primary load cases that are defined for the structure are listed here.|
|Reference Load Cases||All reference load cases that are defined for the structure are listed here.|
|Notional Load Definition||
Loads included in this list make up the Notional Load.
The Factor cell is used to specify the factor with which the selected primary load case or reference load case is to be multiplied. The resulting values are utilized in the notional load definition
The Direction cell is used to select a global direction in which the (lateral) notional loads act for this case.
