Generating Member Loads from Area Loads

Product Feature

12 March 2015


Modeling | Loading

Area loads can be automatically converted into member loads. There are 2 options available for this:

  • Member loads from area loads via plane
  • Member loads from area loads via cells

Depending on the selected option, you either have to define a plane via corner nodes or select cells in the graphic. The area load can either be applied to the entire surface or only the effective or projected surface of the members.
