A new macro has been included with the program to generate
load combinations for the Strength limit state per Eurocode – Basis of
structural design, BS EN 1990:2002+A1:2005.
The load combination
generator is capable of creating load combinations per equations 6.10, 6.10a,
or 6.10b found in Cl. 188.8.131.52.
These equations specify the following combinations of
Alternatively, for the strength limit state, the less
favorable of equations 6.10a and 6.10b may be used:
The effects in each
of the above equations are always additive. If any effect is negative (that is,
would reduce the final sum), its effect is taken as zero.
