In RFEM, I have generated surfaces from a member. How should I change the previously applied member load to act on the surface?


If generating surfaces from a member, the member loads have no effect. It is necessary to define the loads again.

The easiest way is to create a line on the load introduction point (or to create a new line in a surface) and put a line load on it. You can simply copy the member load parameter from input tables and paste it in the table of line load.
