Load Combinations panel

Program design is based on a set of loading combinations. In CSiBridge, load combinations, or combos, are generated by the user or automatically by the program. If the automatically generated load combinations are acceptable, no definition of additional load combinations is required. Note, however, that Notional loads are not included in code-generated combinations. Thus, to consider the combination of notional and lateral loads, appropriate User Load Combinations should be generated.

The Design/Rating > Load Combinations panel has the following components:

Note: Automatic and user-defined combination may be used simultaneously for design. The Analysis > Load Cases - All > Convert Combos command can be used to convert automatic code-generated combos to user-defined combos.
