The "Applied forces" frame contains a table with a list of forces acting on a structure. Adding forces is performed in the "New force" dialog window. The input forces can also be edited on the desktop with the help of active objects.
Applied forces represent an additional load on the structure of the wall, braced sheeting or MSE wall. We can model such as an anchoring crash barrier, crash vehicle, load from billboards and hoardings etc. The program does not modify the applied forces in the calculation except multiplying them with the corresponding coefficients according to the selected type of load (EN1997, LRFD).
The "vertical on wall" type of force is used only for the analysis of vertical bearing capacity. The effect of load on the wall is not considered.
External load acting on the terrain is necessary to define as a a surcharge.
