How is it possible to make factorized combinations of a dead load in the context of form‑finding?


The load from the form-finding load case (FF) is fixed to the structural system 1.0‑times. If you want to factorize the dead load related to the combinations, it is possible to additionally create a permanent load case for the dead load with a 0.35‑fold load.
