Part wall load on beam
If i have a steel beam say 5mtrs long and a wall set at one end 2mtrs long on top of the beam , how do i tell the program this is the case.
If I added the wall height the program will assume that the wall is 5mtrs long x the height x the kn load applied
The area for identifying start and finish of the load are greyed out

Can anyone throw some light on this

Re: Part wall load on beam
Hi catman

when you put in the load to the left of the description are two columns
one says T the other D under the column marked T put in R instead of U
and this will allow you to put part loads in beams

After you put in the description ' wall or whatever' you then put in the loads
something like 2.7 x 2.4 and after that you can put in start and finish positions
measured off one end

so if the wall is only on part of the wall starting at the bearing it would be
something like 0 in the start and 2.0 in the end column

hope this helps
