There are load generators available for beam structures, creating snow loads according to ASCE/SEI 7-10. The load cases are generated depending on the roof structure. Another generator creates coating loads (ice). You can save recurring load combinations as templates.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2020 freely available, and can you send them to me?
- Why is the field "Set Wind on Side" grayed out in the wind load generator after selecting the nodes of the basic geometry and roof geometry?
- Can I also use the wind load generator for open buildings?
- We would like use the online maps on your website to find the snow, wind and seismic loads. Can you please tell us more about activating and using this service?
- Why the load value displayed in the online service "Geo-Zone Tool: Snow, Wind, and Seismic Zone Maps" is different from the value in the corresponding standard in some cases?
- How are the site-specific Geo-Zone Tool data queries calculated to determine various building loads?
- Is it also possible to integrate the online service "Snow, Wind and Seismic Zoning Maps" into external applications?
- There are no load case numbers (LC1, LC2, LC3, ...) but action categories (G, Qw, Qs, Imp) displayed for load combinations. Where can I set this?
- How can I determine loads at particular geographic coordinates in the online service "Geo-Zone Tool: Snow, Wind, and Seismic Zone Maps"?
- How do I combine the effects of the wind load acting on a guyed mast, which consists of mean wind loading and a patch load, according to the standard EN 1993‑3‑1 B.22.214.171.124 (1)?
