Can I Design a Multi-Material Model for ASD & LRFD with one Solution?

The answer to this often asked question is, YES!  RISA-3D includes material specific checkboxes on the Design tab of the Load Combinations spreadsheet that allow you to define the load combinations that shall be checked for members of different materials.  

Therefore, when you have a multi-material model, you can generate two sets of Load Combinations (Service and Strength) then customize which should be used for each material that you have used in your model.
