Load group

Load groups define "how the individual load cases may be combined together" if inserted into a load case combination. Thanks to the load groups, the user can easily specify which load cases MUST, MUST NOT, or CAN act together. Each load group may be used either for permanent loads or for variable loads. Permanent and variable loads cannot appear in the same group.
