Modeling | Loading RFEM 5.xx

In RFEM, I have split a member in surfaces. How should I change the previously applied member load to affect the surface after splitting the member in surfaces?

Answer

If a member is separated into surfaces, member loads cannot be used anymore. In this case, the easiest way is to create a line on the load introduction point 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.
