Loads can be given as wind loads acting onto the inside and outside, line loads onto the inside, point loads applied onto the outside or additional climate loads.
Please note that the arrows indicate the positive direction. So if pressure loads onto the outside face shall be given, these loads should be negative - for the inside positive.
Climate loads used for Winter and Summer conditions are related to a German Guideline or DIN 18008-1. More information for these load conditions can be found here
If you want to consider your own climate laods, select "Own
". Then you can enter
- temperature change inside the gap
- outside ambient pressure
- inside pressure during sealing/fabrication
- difference of height between fabrication and installation
Additional safety factors can also be given, so that load combinations can be easily checked.
