Analysis Factors
« on: January 03, 2018, 08:48:58 PM »
How do you change Analysis Factors in Express? (In PRO it is possible to change the load factor on the Load Sets AND on the Sizing Form. I did an example in express (analysis mode) and I can't find how to change the value used in the sizing form. I need to use a ultimate factor of 1.0 (my loads are already factored).

You cannot change the component load factors in Express. You must modify the Express template using Pro. To update the template, open Pro and open the Express template database. Select Preferences > Defaults and set the default load factors = 1.0. This will enforce that the component-based load factors = 1.0. It is our best practice to assign the load factors to the load sets and not the components.
