Heredity - Construction Stage
Construction stages () allow to create the construction step by step and check all construction stages (this is necessary in programs Sheeting Check, Settlement, FEM).
For individual input types (soil assignment, anchors, supports…) there always exists relationship over.
There are two types:
Defined heredity - (anchors, supports, surcharges…) - these objects always remember the stage, in which they were created. This is also the stage where these objects can be edited. In all subsequent stages these objects can be either removed or it is possible to change some of their properties (post-stressing anchor, change of surcharge magnitude, translating support…). When defining a new construction stage these objects are automatically carried over to that stage.
Automatic heredity - (assigning of soils, terrain profile, influence of water, analysis setting…) - for such types of inputs the properties from the previous stage are carried over to a new one if created. When changing properties in the current construction stage the program proceeds as follows:
- If the property in the next stage remains the same as in the previous stage it also receives the tag new - this change also applies to all subsequent stages.
- If the property in the next stage differs from the one in the previous stage (this means that this property has been in the next stage already changed) then this change is not carried over to subsequent stages.
