When Analysis+Design is done, Linear Static Analysis states are automatically defined by the program. In Loading Cases, Fixed load (G), Live load (Q), Fixed Load (G') taken into account with effective section stiffnesses, Live Load (Q') taken into account with effective section stiffnesses and Vertical earthquake effect (Ez(G)) vertical loads are defined. These loading cases are automatically defined in accordance with TBDY and do not need to be defined separately. If wind and soil loads are defined in the system, the program automatically creates load conditions for those loads.

The definition of earthquake effects can be found in Design Spectrum Analysis under the title of Modal Analysis.

Static linear analysis and load cases are displayed in the structure tree under the Analysis folder.

Apart from these, it is possible to define them in the program when extra load cases are needed.

Location of Static Linear Load Cases Command

You can access it from the Ribbon menu, Analysis and Design tab , under the Define heading.

Usage Steps

  • Click the static linear load case icon.

  • The Static Linear Load Case dialog will open.

  • Create the new installation state by editing the information contained in this dialog.

  • You can also access the linear static analysis load status dialog by clicking the right mouse button on the load status line in the structure tree analysis section.

Static Linear Load Case Dialog

Specifications

Load case name

Enter the name of the load case.

Description

A description describing the loading status is written.

Include dead loads

These are the options that determine whether loads from dead or live loads will participate in the loading situation. If you mark "Use dead loads", dead loads such as walls, dead weights and story coverings are included in the related load situation. Do not tick this option if you are defining seismic loading.

Include live loads

If you mark live loads, for example, the live loads defined on the slab are included in the relevant loading state. Do not tick this option if you are defining seismic loading.

Use for concrete design

It is the information whether the extreme forces calculated using the relevant loading situation will be taken into account in the concrete design. If checked, it will be taken into account.

Use for steel design

It is the information whether the end forces calculated using the relevant loading situation will be taken into account in the steel design. If checked, it will be taken into account.
