First Steps with RFEM
When generating the load with a different arrangement of members within the load plane, I receive incorrect load values. Why is the load not distributed correctly?
For example, if you have a grid with different grid spacing in areas, it is not suitable to apply the load generator with the defined area load plane only. The load would otherwise be determined according to the size of the area load plane and applied to all members (except the boundary members) with the same load value (see Figure, the top part).
However, if the area load is divided into several sections (dialog box section "Boundary of the Area Load Plane"), the load is distributed correctly. This is shown on the bottom part of the figure.
