Reduction of Automatically Generated Combinations
There are three options to reduce the number of combinations. The first two procedures are only available for the generation of load combinations but not for result combinations.
The first option allows for automatic analysis of all load case results (internal forces, deformations, etc.) of selected elements. Then, the program will generate only those combinations which include the load cases producing a maximum or minimum. In addition, you can define a maximum number of relevant load cases, or neglect load cases with a very small contribution to the maximum and minimum values.
The second option allows for automatic evaluation of generated temporary or user-defined result combinations. Then, only the governing load combinations are created.
The third option to reduce the number of generated combinations is to classify only selected actions as leading actions.
