I would like to define a constant temperature load over the cross-section height. Why it is not possible for this to select the load direction in the local x-direction of the member?

Answer

For a constant heating/cooling of the cross-section (membrane component), the load parameter Tc must be defined. This generates the length change along the x-axis automatically. It is not necessary to explicitly select the direction x.

The load parameter ΔT describes the temperature difference from the top side of the member to the bottom side of the member (bending component). This can be defined in the y or z direction.
