[Civil] Precautions When Analyzing the Results of Envelope Type load Combinations

Question

What precautions should be taken when analyzing results for Envelope Type loads?

 

Answer

When analyzing results for Envelope Type load combinations, it's important to note that these combinations provide the maximum and minimum values from the load conditions or combinations included in them. Therefore, the results may not have occurred simultaneously (they may not be due to the same load). This applies to individual components such as element forces, displacements, and stresses within each element as well. To make accurate result comparisons, it's necessary to compare the results of each individual load condition included in the load combination.
