In RF-MOVE Surfaces, can I enter a covering, over which the load distribution width of concentrated loads is automatically taken into account?


If you apply a moving load from the library of load models, you can specify there a "thickness of dispersal layer" and the "angle of dispersal" (see Figure 01). Based on these entries, RF-MOVE Surfaces determines the length and width of the rectangular surfaces and generates free surface loads.

Alternatively, if you have entered concentrated loads as moving loads, you can right-click the free concentrated load and convert it into a surface load by using the corresponding option in the shortcut menu (see Figure 02). There are also the parameters for controlling the load width.
