The settings in this dialog tab only affect the load case or load combination that is selected in the list to the left. The [Apply settings] button transfers the current parameters to all load cases or combinations.

Materials and Cross-Sections / Supports / Releases

In the three dialog sections, you can specify how the stiffnesses of the different model parameters are taken into account in the calculation:

    • Multiply all with factor: Specify a factor that the stiffness of the materials, cross-sections, supports, and releases is globally multiplied with.
    • Individually: The button opens a new dialog box where a specific stiffness factor can be assigned to every object.
