How can I apply wind load distribution to a cylinder according to DIN EN 1991-4, Clause 7.9?

Answer

As of the version 5.03, there is a new load type - free variable load. Using this load type, you can apply variable load along the perimeter when specifying rotation axis. At the same time, you can separate the perimeter in several segments.
