Not Treating Snow and Wind Together as Collateral Actions

Tips & Tricks

According to DIN EN 1990/NA:2010‑12 - NDP to A.1.2.1(1) Comment 2, it is necessary to only apply one of the two climatic actions in the combination expressions for actions according to 6.4.3 and 6.5.3 in the case of places located up to +1,000 m above mean sea level if snow and wind are available as collateral actions in addition to non‑climatic leading action.

You can select this option in the Edit Load Cases and Combinations dialog box, Combination Expressions tab.
