SV vehicles reserve factors

Question:

I'm working with MIDAS CIVIL 2020 V3.2 and would like to know how I can separate ALL model 2 from SV vehicles in the moving load case to be able to calculate the reserve factors.


Thanks


Answer:

Hi,

It is only provided after assessment to CS 454 as shown below.


However, I found a workaround as follows;
Define ALL model 2 with all lane factors equal to zero.

Define a moving load case using the combined SV 80 and ALL model 2 (all lane factors = 0). This load case will give you the effects of SV vehicle only. The effects of ALL model 2 only can be obtained by subtracting 'SV 80 Normal only' from 'SV 80 Normal'. Please refer to the attached file.
