I am new to RSA and 3D Analysis. So, I will be asking lots of questions
I made a model of a canopy (in RSA 2010) that supports fabric on top. In order to simulate the action of the fabric in load distribution, I used claddings spanning between the two frames, specified the load distribution direction and applied a surface load on the cladding. The verification shows no error but the cladding is not working as no load is distributed to the steel frames.
Attached is the model I made.
I hope someone can help with this.

Claddings should be flat. Try to replace the single one you defined with number of straps that follow the divisions of arches into straight bars.
