Name

Type a name for the load
combination.

Description

Type a description used to
annotate the load combination.

Type

Select the combination method to
use for this load combination:
 Linear – A pure
algebraic load combination in which the results of all constituent cases will
be algebraically added.
Ex.:
${f}_{1}\times {L}_{1}+{f}_{2}\times {L}_{2}+{f}_{3}\times {L}_{3}$
 SRSS – The
square root of the sum of the squares method of combination.
Ex.
${f}_{1}\times {L}_{1}+{f}_{SRSS}\times \sqrt{{f}_{2}{L}_{2}^{2}+{f}_{3}{L}_{3}^{2}}$
 ABS – Algebraic
combination of absolute values.
Ex.:
${f}_{1}\times \left{L}_{1}\right+{f}_{2}\times \left{L}_{2}\right+{f}_{3}\times \left{L}_{3}\right$

Load case factor

Click the field to display a check list of all
current load cases.

Factors

Here you can specify the multiplier (factor
f_{i}) for each load case. You can also
specify if the load case is included within the SRSS portion for SRSS type
combinations.
