Floors (shell) - Make load distribution visible

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.

Its not really important for me that is being colored. I want to understan how it is distributed better. That it takes in account the stiffness is what I needed to know haha.

I made a little setup to confirm this. Thanks!
