Is there any way to consider friction only the expansion case but not in any occasional Wind loads?
Consider defining wind load cases in a separate analysis set and set the friction scale factor to zero in that analysis set. (Load> Static Analysis Sets> Enable "Gaps/Friction/Soil", with other load cases, press OK button, on the "Non-Linear Analysis settings, Friction scale factor = 0.0, press OK button).
