What load cases are use to select a spring hanger in AutoPIPE?
Use can select any Thermal Load case(s) from the dialog.
When only one load case is selected, say T2, the free thermal displacement from thermal case T2 at the spring location node is used for hanger selection at that node. When all thermal cases are selected then the maximum free thermal displacement from all selected thermal cases at the spring location node is used for hanger selection at that node.
