For example, if you have a grid with different grid spacing in areas, it is not suitable to apply the load generator with the defined area load plane only. The load would otherwise be determined according to the size of the area load plane and applied to all members (except the boundary members) with the same load value (see Figure, the top part).
However, if the area load is divided into several sections (dialog box section 'Boundary of the Area Load Plane'), the load is distributed correctly. This is shown on the bottom part of the figure.
If you apply a moving load from the library of load models, you can specify there a 'thickness of dispersal layer' and the 'angle of dispersal' (see Figure 01). Based on these entries, RF-MOVE Surfaces determines the length and width of the rectangular surfaces and generates free surface loads.
Alternatively, if you have entered concentrated loads as moving loads, you can right-click the free concentrated load and convert it into a surface load by using the corresponding option in the shortcut menu (see Figure 02). There are also the parameters for controlling the load width.
