This section explains the load combination process in Tekla Structures.
Load combination is a process in which some simultaneously acting load groups are multiplied by their partial safety factors and combined with each other according to specific rules.
Load combination rules are specific to a design process and are defined in building or design codes. One of the most typical design processes is the limit state design.
Load combination properties define how Tekla Structures combines loads. The following properties control the load combination process:
Load modeling code
Load combination factors
Load combination types
Load group compatibility
