Allow stresses from soils to be combined with other pipe stress loads in user defined combinations
Currently ring bending stresses in pipes from soil loads cannot be exported within a separate user-defined load combination (like gravity / thermal / poisson loads etc.) but has to be exported as part of a very specific pre-determined code combination (i.e. within sustained stresses etc.). Would Bentley please consider changing the load combination capability such that ring bending stresses from soil loads could be combined with other loads in a user defined combination in the Results>Combinations tab (preferable activated for combinations for both Code Combinations and Non-Code Combinations). This would enable much more flexibility in analysing buried pipe under multiple loading conditions.
