[7/8/10] Moving Load Envelopes
If any load combination/envelope includes a load comb/envelope that is written in the INP or MOV file after the first load combination/envelope, the program gives error message.  For example:

Once “Execute moving load” is activated the program performs a validation of the MOV file and reads the file line-by-line.

The first load combination includes a component called “TRUCK,” which is an envelope defined later in the MOV file.  The workaround for this issue is to modify the MOV file manually and write ENVELOPE before combinations.

COMBINATIONS
ENVELOPE Truck
     H1 ,H2, H3, H4
OUTPUT
     COMBINATIONS Combination_1
     1.0*Base_Load+1.0*TRUCK
OUTPUT
