I would like to calculate a multi-span beam. Is it possible to automatically apply imposed loads by span (for the design of the largest supporting moment and moment in the span)?


For an arrangement of the loads by span (chessboard-like), it is necessary to create a separate load for each span that is to be loaded (see the figure).

All possible load positions are then considered for the automatic combinations of the actions, which can be specified in 'General Data' of the model.
