The combinations are created in a similar way for every design code. ACI has several specific combination rules that differ from Eurocode, for example:

ULS combinations: 1,40*Permanent load

1,20*Permanent load + 1,60*Variable load

SLS combinations are defined separately for Deflections and Crack width.
