Assigning Climatic Loads to Load Cases

Tips & Tricks

When designing panes of insulating glass, there is a new feature which allows you to assign climatic loads to load cases. Climatic loads are included in three categories here: temperature difference, atmospheric pressure difference, and altitude difference.

You can assign all categories to various load cases and thus assign different partial factors to the categories. It is possible to combine the assigned load cases in a load combination with the corresponding superposition and then select them for design in Window 1.1. Climatic loads can be assigned separately for ‘summer’ and ‘winter’.
