Default Short CommandLSNOW

Snow load (as surface loads) can be placed automatically on the open, external plates and plate parts.

Definition steps

  1. Start the 1583337790658-283.png  Snow load command from Loads tabmenu.
    1582804849244-917.pngThe generated snow surface loads will be inserted in a load case called “Snow load”. If there is no “Snow load”-named load case in the project, the program automatically defines it for the automatic snow load.
  2. Set the characteristic snow load value in the settings dialog according to the current code rules. The program calculates the applied snow load value (intensity) from the characteristic value and the built-in form, exponation and thermal factors of the Eurocode.
  3. Clicking OK generates surface loads on the open plate surfaces/region parts.
