I have assigned a line load to a member. The message appears that the line is loaded, but does not belong to a surface.


Generally, line loads are assigned to lines within the program.

Generally, line loads are only suitable for lines that belong to a surface. This means that the line either represents the boundary line of the surface or must be integrated into the surface. In the case of loading a line that is assigned to both a member and a surface, this is possible without any problems.

If there is no surface available and a member is to be loaded with a line load, the load type Member Load must be used.
