Default Load dialogue window fixed position

tony

when a beam is selected and the load dialogue appears - it is to the bottom left hand side of the screen

when this is moved say to the top RH side of the screen every time a new beam is selected it goes back to the original position

i don't think this happened on earlier releases

can the load dialogue window be fixed when moved and this new position will remain for the duration of the project??

many thanks and kind regards

Martin

It ought to remember its position when closed and reopen at this position: I will check it out tomorrow and fix if necessary.

Yes, sorry for not updating you. This is fixed in the 4th Feb release of SB4.56i/PS5.40i - as I considered this to me a minor change the build letter wasn't changed, also at that point only a handful of people had downloaded the original 2nd Feb build - but you were one.

Go to Misc, Check Website for Updates: the first check will tell you that your version is current, but download the update anyway and install. All should then be OK.

Default Re: Load dialogue window fixed position

In inputing loads in the dialog window, is the dead load safety factor (40%) and the live load factor (60%) incloded in the standard loading of standard forms of construction?
ie does the loading need to be increased by the safety factor or is this added automatically by the program?

Thanks

In SuperBeam (BS449) this is not necessary: the factor of safety is provided by the permissible stress (from the appropriate BS) being significantly less than the stress that would cause failure.

For example if you design a restrained S275 steel beam in SuperBeam the loads are not factored but the maximum bending stress is limited to 180N/mm2. If you did the same calculation using ProSteel (BS5950) the loads would be factored by 1.4/1.6 but the allowable bending stress would be 275N/mm2 (assuming a flange thickness <=16mm). More or less the same answer arrived at in two different ways.
