Added weight does not affect my displacement results in AutoPIPE, why?
Check the load case that the weight was assigned to:
As seen above the load case was set to U140 and U1. No check to be sure that these load cases are being analyzed as part of an analysis set:
In addition, verify that the load case is part of a combination that is displayed and printed on the Load Combination Dialog Load Cases Tab and Non-Code Combination tab, indicated bellow:
If a specific indicated load case (ie. U1 or U140) is not part of an Analysis Set that is analyzed AND not indicated on the Non-Code Combination tab, then the concentrated load is not being considered.
Fix, adjust the Analysis Set and Non-combination settings accordingly:
"Displacement" sub report
Why does additional weight not considered in my analysis?
