How can I create a load arranged in a checkered way?


It is recommended to create separate load cases for each span to be loaded. It is then necessary to generate the loads by span in the individual load cases. Free rectangular or polygonal loads allow you to enter surface loads on a freely definable area of the surface. As an alternative, you can divide the surface into partial surfaces and apply the surface load.

Furthermore, it is possible to use the RF-MOVE Surfaces add-on module to create load cases including loads.

You can then create the checkered arrangement of the loads in the load combinations or result combinations by combining the individual load cases.

The video shows the manual creation and generation of load cases and loads with RF‑MOVE Surfaces.
