 # M. To generate load combinations per Eurocode

To generate load combinations for the Strength limit state per Eurocode - Basis of structural design, BS EN 1990:2002+A1:2005 (sometimes referred to as "Eurocode 0").

The load combination generator is capable of creating load combinations per equations 6.10, 6.10a, or 6.10b found in Cl. 6.4.3.2.

The load combination generator is capable of creating load combinations per equations 6.10, 6.10a, or 6.10b found in Cl. 6.4.3.2.

These equations specify the following combinations of loads:

 $Σ j ≥ 1 γ G , j G k , j + γ p P + γ Q , 1 Q k , 1 + Σ i > 1 γ Q , 1 ψ 0 , 1 Q k , 1$ (6.10)

Alternatively, for the strength limit state, the less favorable of equations 6.10a and 6.10b may be used:

 $Σ j ≥ 1 γ G , j G k , j + γ p P + γ Q , 1 ψ 0 , 1 Q k , 1 + Σ i > 1 γ Q , 1 ψ 0 , 1 Q k , 1$ (6.10a)

 $Σ j ≥ 1 ξ j γ G , j G k , j + γ p P + γ Q , 1 Q k , 1 + Σ i > 1 γ Q , 1 ψ 0 , 1 Q k , 1$ (6.10b)

 Gk = Permanent actions P = Prestress actions Qk = Variable actions

1. On the Utilities ribbon tab, select the User Tools > Euro Code Load Combination Generator tool in the User Tools group.

The Eurocode Combination Generator dialog opens. 2. Select the Equation Number to use for the generation of load combinations.
3. (オプション) Specify a Start Combination Number.
4. Select the Method as either:

Combination to use post-analysis combination of results, which appropriate for linear elastic analysis

または

Repeat Load to generate repeat load cases from the primary load cases, which is appropriate for second order effects and dynamic analysis

5. (オプション) Specify load Factors for use in the combination equations.
Factor title Equation notation
Permanent Actions, Gamma G γG
Pre Stress Actions, Gamma P γP
Variable Actions, Gamma Q γQ
Permanent Action Reduction Factor, Xi ξ
Variable Action Combination Factor, Psi 0 ψ0
注記: The default values are taken from those provided in EC0.
6. (オプション) Click Table A1.1 to select one of the recommended values for the Permanent Action Reduction Factor, Psi (ψ0).
7. Click Categories to specify in which load action classification each STAAD.Pro load category is to be assigned.
(None) Loads of this type will not be included in generated load combinations.
