Solid Load

Glossary Term

If a solid is loaded not only on surface areas, but also inside the body, it will be necessary to define a solid load.

This affects all 3D elements of the solid.

In addition to the uniform directional forces, it is possible in RFEM to apply the loads due to temperature, strain, buoyancy and rotary motion. In the case of creating a solid filled with gas and activating form-finding for this element, you can additionally define the gas load parameters.
