In Consteel 16, we introduced the function of load combination filter. Filtering is possible based on the load combinations’ limit state, load cases, and corresponding analysis and design results. The goal is to create different sets for the different steps of the optimization and reduce calculation time while making sure that all the relevant load combinations are considered. Let’s see what a conscious design workflow looks like in practice!GATE
Consteel 14 is a powerful analysis and design software for structural engineers. Watch our video how to get started with Consteel.
- Define load groups and load cases
- Generate load combinations
- Define line loads globally
- Define partial line loads locally
Even if all of the load combination generation formulas of EN are implemented in Consteel for the automatic generation of combinations, standard formulas may not cover every necessary combination cases.gate
