LL static load case

Question:

Hi,

Is there any way how to find the total load value and loaded length of live load in static load case?


Answer:Hello,
There is no easy way to judge the exact distance over which a UDL is applied in a converted moving load position. However, this can be done approximately using the Query>Query Node option. With that, the distance between the 2 nodes is obtained and hence, the loaded length could be judged.
About the total load value, this can be very easily judged after the analysis. The summation of vertical reactions for the said load case is the total applied load.
