When using equivalent static analysis for EQ to AS1170.4, why can't you use the results in a combination with non linearity (ie a non-linear combination, or one that includes non-linear member properties i.e. tension only)?
I'm thinking that the equivalent static analysis does not work correctly for models with non-linear members. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Solved! Go to Solution.
you are right - components from equivalent static analysis are ignored in non-linear combinations .
