Joint Loads

The frame "Joint loads" contains a table with the list of input joint loads. Each joint load is assigned to a certain load case and input joint. The selection of the load is performed in the "Active load case" combo list. Adding (editing) joint loads is performed in the "New load of joints" dialog window

The program allows for specifying either mechanical (e.g. forces) or deformational (e.g. prescribed displacements of supports) actions.

The input joint loads can also be edited on the desktop with the help of active objects.

The program employs the following coordinate systems (sign convention).
