Multiple pressure loads in one model

Multiple pressure loads in one model

Multiple pressure loads in one model

This might be a silly question but here goes:

Is it not possible to add multiple pressure loads to a surface (or distributed loads to a beam) in the same model? I am a structural engineer using Algor to analyse structures such as bridges and tunnels. For example, I want to be able to apply evenly distributed traffic load as well as superimposed dead load to an element and see the results separately. Is this possible and if so how do I do it?

All pressure loads (or distributed loads) seem to be added to the same load case.


RE: Multiple pressure loads in one model


first of all, algor have an tool call DESIGN SCENARIOS. You can create all the scenarios that you want. In this scenarios you can put all the loads and pressures you want to simulate.

since you start to modeling in the program, if you look at the left up, appears something call DESING SCENARIO 1. Right click on that, and appears a window. Click on new or copy, so that way you can create a new scenario for put a diferent load case.

In other words, the design scenario is just a tool that the program give you for you to create many types of load cases
