To enhance productivity of GSE Timber software’ users, the Anchorage Elongation Method can be defined as variable (tension only) and variable (tension and compression). The anchorage slip is calculated at each iteration according to the tension efforts at the anchorage locations.
HSE users can efficiently set and edit all required fatigue parameters for the structure allowing to consider all applicable fatigue loads such as Galloping, Natural Wind Gust, or Truck-Induced Gust.
The live load reduction is available for the GSE steel, concrete, aluminum, and wood modules. The live load reduction will be applied to the columns of the structure.
Live loads can be automatically reduced according to the selected method. The software computes the live load reduction factor (LLRF) that will reduce the effective axial compression force in columns.
The resistance limit states, under fire conditions, are calculated for large cross-section wood elements. To improve the productivity of GSE users, the elements cross-sections are automatically reduced during the limit state checks.
