Regarding design codes

Is there any option to change the design code after complete modelling and analysis of structure. So that i can check and compare my structure with different countries codes.


General, a change of the default-design code in a current project is not recommended because this could cause problems with code-incompatible values (e.g. materials, safety factors, boxed values or superposition-values).

The change can only be done in a text based task using the NORM command in AQUA. Please see Chapter ‘3.6 NORM – Default Design Code’ in AQUA manual. After changing the design code please check your system.

Aside from this clumsy workflow, I recommend using two different projects with different design codes.
