Load Combinations in Construction StagingI want to determine the maximum forces on a structure during an entire construction sequence. It is not necessarily true that the maximum loads on a given member, support, or elastic link will be greatest at the final step of the construction sequence. MIDAS Civil currently provides the min/max loads during erection, but I need to create load combinations to satisfy the Australian code (AS5100).
I need to create linear combinations of:
Steel dead load
Concrete dead load (per AS5100, steel and concrete have different dead load factors)
Superimposed (composite) dead load
Construction wind load
Construction live load
For wind and live load, I need to envelope a number cases, since it is unclear which one will govern.
Presumably, such a feature would be beneficial for satisfying any building code. In addition, one should be able to import these combination into the section design tools already in MIDAS.
