I have an Autopipe model I would like to carry out Earthquake and Dynamic analysis with SAMs.
I have applied the static Earthquake case as shown below as an initial check.
I have also applied the response spectrum,(see below) adding support groups with corresponding imposed displacements (see R1, SAM case 1 example)
Response spectrum analysis window
Case 1 definition window
Do the R1, R2… results, automatically combine the response spectrum analysis with the imposed displacements applied in S1,S2…?
Or do I still need to create a user define load combination to capture the response spectrum and the corresponding imposed displacements?
If so please could you elaborate on the combination I need to implement, providing an example for R1S1?
Thank you for your help.
