# How can I apply the wind load by an angular function to the surface (for example, a grain silo, curved wall, etc.)?

#### Respuesta

To apply a wind load to an asymmetric shell, RFEM offers the linear variable load distribution.

For an easier load application, it helps if the shell consists of several portions, for example one-eighths circle portions. You can then define the loading in the local z-direction with a linear load distribution (see figure).

Depending on the required precision, you can also define smaller portions.
