Although I have selected "simultaneously" for several load cases within one action category, there are also load combinations generated that do not act simultaneously.


In this case, simultaneous action does not mean that the load cases must occur simultaneously, but they may (see Figure 01).

If the loads are to always act simultaneously, you must also select the option "Individually/simultaneously acting load cases" (see Figure 02).
