The stiffness has been modified for surfaces, members, or cross-sections, but this is not considered in the calculation. How to activate the modification for the calculation?


For items created before version X.06., the stiffness coefficients are applied by default only for load combinations, not for load cases. In the 'Calculation Parameters' section, it is necessary to use the corresponding option of the 'Activate Stiffness Factors' to ensure that the stiffness modification is also applied to the load cases. The stiffness modification is automatically active for new positions from version X.06.
