AutoPIPE's 'Hydrotest' load combination was not exported to STAAD, why?
Running a test using AutoPIPE V8i 09.06.02.06 and 09.05.xx.xx, when creating a hydrotest in both versions the load case is created as a separate Analysis set (i.e. Analysis set #2), shown below:
When imported into STAAD it will show up as a 2nd gravity load case, as shown below:
The Gravity 2 load cases imported is essential the hydrostatic load on the structure. When set up correctly there will be a difference between these loads case Gravity and Gravity(2) in STAAD.
