This test lets you validate the combined case. The aim is to compare a static case
(where several forces are applied) and a combination of static cases (the set of forces of each
static case is therefore equivalent to the one of the first
configuration).

de structures, SSLL 06/89, p30, 1990.

Results of the first configuration (all forces
applied are located in one static case)
