To apply a nodal load
To assign a concentrated load or moment at a node, use the following procedure.
Nodal loads (i.e.,
joint loads) â€“both forces and momentsâ€“ may be applied to any free joint of a
structure.
Any number of loads may be applied on a single node, in
which case the loads will be additive on that node.
 Select the nodes which all have the same load.

On the
Nodal ribbon tab, select the
Nodal Load tool in the
Loads group.
The Add Nodal Load dialog opens.  Select the Load group or case to which the load will be added from the dropdown list.
 Select the Reference CS (coordinate system). Select either the WCS (global coordinate system) or a usercreated coordinate system.
 Select if the Direction of the loads along the selected coordinate system are parallel to the coordinate system or oriented toward the coordinate system origin.

Type the force and moment magnitudes acting along the global
directions at the nodes.
Positive force values are taken in the direction of the axes. Positive moment directions are taken counterclockwise about the axes.
 Click OK. The dialog closes and the loads are assigned to the nodes.
