Thomas Günthel Modeling | Loading RFEM

I get the warning 11006 "The free load is not used on any surface" although the load is exactly on a surface edge, what can I do?


Free line loads have no tolerance for surface boundaries. This means that the coordinates of the line load, except for the last decimal place, must match those of the line. Alternatively, the line load z. B. offset by 1mm inwards.

In the example shown on the left, the line load runs exactly between two nodes, but they do not have the absolutely identical coordinates in x-direction. In this case, you can select the nodes in the load dialog box using the [Select] button.
