The following enhancements and defects have already been requested:
BS 7159: K factor incorrectly set as 0.6 instead of 1.0 for occasional stress category
K-factor for Occasional category code combinations for BS7159 piping code is incorrectly set as 0.6, resulting in a lower allowable value.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new BS7159 model
2. Add an anchor and attach a pipe
3. Insert a static earthquake load and add that load to the analysis set
4. Analyze the model
5. Open the Combination dialog and navigate to Code Comb. tab
Notice that the K-factor for the Occasional combination would be incorrectly set as 0.6. BS7159 does not provide a specific K-factor for occasional loads, and this factor should be reset to 1.0.
Manually set the K-factor value for the impacted code combinations using Code comb. tab of Combinations dialog be fore reviewing analysis results.
Development Project: TBD
