Considering Stiffness Modification for Load Cases and Modifications
Tips & Tricks
Now it is possible to separately activate or deactivate the modified stiffnesses for material, cross‑sections, or members, respectively. Previously, all modifications could be activated or deactivated only globally for the respective load case or load combination (see Figure).
For load cases, these settings are deactivated by default, for manually and automatically created combinations they are activated. By selecting the ‘Modify Stiffness’ option, you also activate another tab, where you can specify various settings individually.
