# Limiting tension at a support and dynamic factor application

**Question:**

Good afternoon,

**Answer:**

Hi ,

Good morning,

Does this mean, I would have to convert all of my moving load analysis results into static results. and then like you said analyse each load separately and then add the effects together at the end to get for example the maximum bending moment?

Kind regards

Hi ,

Do you have any literature to explain the above. I am not sure how to define this correctly. I have 8 supports and want them all to be limited so that no tension is experienced in any of them and then I can take a look at the effects.

RE the DL's this is fine now.

In addition, can you take a look at my results for my moving load analysis. When analysing the effects of the combination (CB min Live load), you can see that there is hogging in one of my cross members and the trimmer beam towards the bottom right support which is not there in reality. Is this an error with the modelling of the shell elements as they are not quadrilateral around those locations due to the skew?

My deflected shape reflects these results. As the deflections are minimal it seems okay to ignore them but it does induce hogging.

Kind regards
