Auto Load Combinations

Question:

Hi,

If we use CS only for auto-load generation, should we include Wearing course and crash barrier under dead load?

In that case we cannot give separate load factors for wearing course which is different from dead load factor.

If we use CS+ST both dead load (CS) and dead load (ST), PSC CS and ST are coming and different load factors for wearing course (ST) and CB (ST) are coming then in this case we have dead delete DL-ST and PSC-ST from auto load generation load combinations. 

Is there  any way to get DL (CS), tendon primary and secondary , creep and shrinkage (cs) , wearing course (st) and crash barrier (st) and other loads with their respective factors.

Thanks 

Answer:

Hello,

In this situation, basically the wearing course and crash barrier load need to be separated from the Dead Load (CS).  This can be done using the Distinguish from Dead Load for CS under Analysis> Construction Stage Analysis Control. (FAQ Link).  Once this is done, just generate the combinations for CS only.
Kindly let us know if further assistance would be required.
