Design factor for internal pressure - shaswin - 16-12-2008

Hi,

Is it possible to add the design factor for internal pressure (load case 2) in the load case table.

The design factor 1,25 (for internal pressure) is hardcoded in PLE.

In Rotterdam we use according to the Handbook higher values.
We cannot change this value in PLE.

Thanks

Shaswin,

The design factor 1,25 for the hoop stress (due to internal pressure) is applicable and hardcoded in the NEN 3650 module only. This module has been designed to follow the rules of NEN 3650. When you apply a different code - the Rotterdam Code in this case - you should use the General option instead of the NEN 3650 option.
