(Moving) Load Generation Type dialog
Used to specify direction on plane on the structure to simulate the movement of a predefined vehicle for a moving load definition.
Opens when Add is clicked from the Load & Definition dialog when Vehicle Definitions is selected.
|Type||Reference a previously defined moving load (e.g., vehicle definition) in the input file. Vehicles definitions are created using the Create New Moving Load Definitions dialog.|
|Range||(Optional) defines section of the structure along global vertical direction to carry moving load. This r value is added and subtracted to the reference vertical coordinate (y1 or z1)in the global vertical direction to form a range. The moving load will be externally distributed among all members within the vertical range thus generated. r always should be a positive number. In other words, the program always looks for members lying in the range Y 1 and Y1+ABS(r) or Z1 and Z1+ABS(r). The default r value is very small, so entering r is recommended.|
|Initial Position of Load||Global X, Y, and Z coordinates of the initial position of the reference load.|
Incremental values of position of load system coordinates (in global axes) to be used for generation of subsequent load cases.
