Hyperstatic analysis

As of the 2017.e version, a new attribute has been added to loadcases: the “Type of analysis”.

Users can select between a static analysis or hyperstatic analysis. In previous versions, a static analysis was carried out for each loadcase. The hyperstatic analysis is required when structures are designed with post-tensioned slabs. Even though users can choose to carry out a hyperstatic analysis for any loadcase, this type of analysis is logical when there is equilibrium amongst loads that are introduced, as occurs with post-tensioned cases, since the supports of the structure are eliminated.
