Dummy Leg in CAESAR II

Dummy Leg in CAESAR II

Dummy Leg in CAESAR II

Hello everyone;
In a CAESAR II model I decided to add a dummy leg in the model. In my first try everything was OK and there was no overload at the equipment nozzles. But when I changed the direction of dummy leg, did this out of curiosity, I understood the dummy is not sustaining any load and consequently the equipment nozzles are overloaded again. Please take a look at the files I've included in a zip file attached to my post and leave your comments.
Any help is highly appreciated.

PS: The length of dummy leg in both models is equal to 1.5' but in C2 model the length of 2.5' is inserted for the relevant element because the length of a 8-inch elbow is 1'. I've used the offset box to model dummy leg.
