6.15 Generated Loads

RFEM provides several generators that you can use to easily create loads (see Chapter 11.8). Generated member or surface loads can be found in Table 3.15 and in the Data navigator.

The original generator dialog boxes are stored as specific load objects and can also be accessed for modifications: Double-click a navigator item or use the button to once more open the initial dialog box (see for example Figure 11.194) where you can adjust the load generation parameters.

In the load shortcut menu and the Display navigator, you can select whether the generated loads are displayed as a surface load symbol or Separately as member loads.
