Load cases unavailable for results review
Dear Technical Support:
I defined 4 load cases:
PIER_SW: self-weight from the pier column, Element load group: LD1P_SW
Girder_SW: girder self-weight, including frame element loads, and wet-concrete which is removed once the segmental component is added as a structural entity with its own element dead load.
+ Element load: Load groups LD1G_SW0 - 12
+ Wet concrete load: Load groups SW1G_0 - 11
PS: prestress loads. Will be added gradually according to the advance of the segment erection, Load groups: PS_P1_0 - 11
FT: load from the form traveler, Load groups FT_P1_0 - 11
I defined one construction sequence that erects one half of the bridge: one half structure associated with one pier.
After I ran the data file, I could not find any of the above load cases for result review.
How I can review the results (reactions, deflections and member forces) for the above load case?
Or I have to define a few load combinations for the loads involved in the above construction sequence? The structure is analyzed with nonlinear analysis even if I configured the construction sequence is performed with linear analysis as mentioned in yesterday's reply to my question; as such superposition could not be applied and the results could not be identified for individual load cases because of the compression-only point spring support.
When I defined one load combination ConstructStage, I can find this load combination, but the construction stage/step are lost. I only have the final results. What is wrong with my data file.
I attached my data file.
I'll try to segregate the overall query into smaller questions and try answering them.
