Frequently Asked Question   →   Loads

1. How to move a load or a copy of it to another load case?

Choose the Loads tab, drag the load with the mouse. Before clicking select another load case from the dropdown list beside the Load cases and load groups icon.After clicking at the load position the load will be transferred to the selected load case.

Loads can be copied using a geometry transformation available on the Icon bar on the left. Before clicking at the final position select the target load case from the dropdown list beside the Load cases and load groups icon. After clicking at the final position copies of the selected loads will be placed into the selected load group. Entire load cases can be copied using the Load cases and load groups dialog.

2. I can place several loads to the same beam (even loads of different types). How can I modify or delete just one of them?

Use Fast Modify: Choose the Loads tab and click the beam. It allows you to modify the load nearest to the clicked position:
- concentrated beam loads: click the load position on the beam;
- distributed beam loads: click the start point, endpoint or center point of the distributed load.

It may happen that two distributed loads have the same start and end-point on the beam. In this case (and in all other cases as well) we can change load values or delete loads one by one using Table Browser (F12) after selecting the beam. In this case Fast Modify lets us modify only one of the loads.
