Model and load objects can not only be defined graphically or in tables, but can also be created using parameters (see manual ). With this parameterized input, you can also access cells of certain tables of the program. In this way, it is possible to link a load parameter with a model data parameter, for example. The reference is created by the $ sign.

The figures show how the entry $ 1.1 (F3) refers to a coordinate in Table 1.1. The number of cell F3 is shown in brackets. With this reference, the nodal load is automatically adjusted if the Z-coordinate of the node changes. The load is thus dependent on the position of the node.

The values are related to the basic units according to the SI convention, that is [m] and [N].
