# Floors (shell) - Make load distribution visible

207 Views, 2 Replies

Is there a way to make the distribution of the loads on a floor visible through colors (like is done with claddings)?

What I want to know is: How is RSA distribution the loads on floor with 2 fields.

_____________________________ (<- Floor with 3 supports)
ABC

What does support B bear?

1) RB = 1/2 x L(AB) + 1/2 x L(BC) (and (RA = 1/2 x L(AB)))

2) RB = (1/2 x L(AB) + 1/2 x L(BC))x1,1 (and (RA = 1/2 x L(AB))x0,9)

Hope it is clear what I mean!

Alex,

I assume you refer to distribution done by means of surface elements (mesh). In such case there is no tributary area assigned to a supporting object, the load transfer is the function of the stifness of elements of the model and it cannot be displayed as colored surface.
