Thanks. we all appreciate the work you are doing.
I agree with GabrieleNovembri: "I think gM =1,5 should be normally used"
It is obvious that the value γΜ=1.50 should be used...
I also agree with what he said about Artur and all the support team: "we all appreciate the work you are doing."
The development team has tentatively scheduled to deliver a fix in the next Service Pack which should be available by the end of this month. Please mind that you should have some seismic type combinations created to have this provisions checked.
Please note: Our quality assurance teams may need to reschedule some fixes. Please rely on the above timeline information as a guideline only and not a guarantee. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
I'm sorry but the correction has been postponed and has not been included in SP4 for Robot 2014.
I invite myself in the discussion :
EC2 and EC8 is "clear" (let say clear for the eurocode system which is complex for other system!) on the coefficient gamma c to use :
EC2 22.214.171.124 : gives the coefficient for durable/non durable and accidental situation (seism is not mentionned and as not to be mixed with accidental because is a special accidental situation due to cyclic loading among other parameters)
EC8 5.2.4 : tells you that the correct set of values for seism has to be the same than durable/non durable situation (eg : gammac = 1.5) but note (2) tells you that finally each country can choose also accidental .....
EC8 5.2.4 French Annex for example : as we always do different than the others : we chose to use the accidental values : gammac =1.20 and gammas = 1.00 but for concrete we increase the safety unsing 1.30 ....
So generally, Seism gammac = 1.50 and gammas = 1.15
For the French, gammac = 1.30 and gammas = 1.00
Sorry my extracts are in French but you have the reference to find them by yourself in english.
