Load factor for self weight loads

I am applying different loads to a shell:

  1. loads due to self weight = gravity
  2. dead loads
  3. live loads

I applied a facor of 1.35 to the dead loads and 1.5 to the live loads. How can one apply a factor of 1.35 to the loads due to gravity as well? Should I change the gravity constant itself? Does not seem like a good idea to change gravity :smiley:


Hi, you just need to apply a multiplier of 1.35 to gravity. The default value for gravity is -1 in the Z direction.
