Applied Forces - Plane Slip Surface
The "Applied forces" frame contains a table with a list of forces acting on a rock block. Adding forces is performed in the "New force" dialog window. The input forces can be also edited on the desktop with the help of active objects.
Applied forces represent an additional load on the rock block. We can model such as rope anchorage of bridges or pedestrian overpath etc. Program doesn`t modify the applied forces in the calculation in any way except multiplying them with the corresponding coefficients according to the selected type of load (EN1997, LRFD).
External load acting to the ground surface is necessary to define as a surcharge.
