I’m trying to define a line load on beam elements (or structural lines) and would like to calculate the load intensity based on the cross-section height or width. Since the height of the cross section varies along a GAX and is interpolated within AQUA, I’d like to access the height of each beam element, multiply it with a certain area load (eg. wind pressure, live load) to obtain the line load to be applied on the respective element. Is this possible in TEDDY or Sofiplus?
In other words, can I access the interpolated section variables (height, width etc.) along a GAX within SOFILOAD?
Below is the SOFILOAD code I’d like to use with #HEIGHT defined as a TVAR in AQUA and interpolated along a GAX.
LC 10+#i TYPE Q_A DLZ 1.0 TITL ‘LL’
BEAM SLN 10000+#i*1000 TYPE PG PA 10.0 *#HEIGHT
