What is the effect of dimensioning when classifying loads into the Gq Continuous / Payload (1.C) impact category?

Answer

The exposure category "Constant / Payload" was created from a customer request. This is not part of EN 1990.

With this constant payloads z. B. Floor construction o. Ä. with the partial safety factor of 1.35 instead of 1.5.

All combinations are initially generated without this load case "continuous / payload" and once with this load case.

Example:

LF1 -> Constantly

LF2 -> Constant / Payload

LF 3 -> Payload 1

LF 4 -> Payload 2


Result

LK1 -> 1.35 * LF1

LK2 -> 1.35 * LF1 + 1.35 * LF2

LK3 -> 1.35 * LF1 + 1.5 * LF3

LK4 -> 1.35 * LF1 + 1.5 * LF3 + 1.5 * LF4

LK5 -> 1.35 * LF1 + 1.5 * LF4

LK6 -> 1.35 * LF1 + 1.35 * LF2 + 1.5 * LF3

LK7 -> 1.35 * LF1 + 1.35 * LF2 + 1.5 * LF3 + 1.5 * LF4

LK8 -> 1.35 * LF1 + 1.35 * LF2 + 1.5 * LF4
