mass

Question:

Hi, Sir/Madam


I found the mass at nodes doesn't change no matter if I add "Self Weight" in Loads to Masses or not. Please confirm.

My question is how I can increase self weight mass 5% more required by code.


thanks,


Answer:
Hi,

Self weight can only be converted into mass from the Structure Type dialog. You can increase mass density by 1.05 to increase self weight mass from the Material dialog.
