Generating Member/Line Loads from Area Loads

  • Knowledge Base

Product Feature



Modeling | Loading


Area loads can be automatically converted into member or line loads. There are 3 options available for this:

  • Member loads from area loads via plane
  • Member loads from area loads via cells
  • Line loads from area loads on openings

In the case of the member loads from area loads, a plane has to be defined via corner nodes or cells have to be selected in the graphic. The area load can either be applied to the entire surface or only the effective or projected surface of the members.

For the "Line loads from area loads on openings" function, the corresponding openings are selected.
