notional load


How to apply notional load on each floor ? How to get the self-weight of the structure (beam, column and slab) since by using assigned floor load, the weight of the floor has to be manually applied? 


For the notional load, please refer to the attached file (page 3~6).
To know the self-weigh by inputting the floor load, (1) load cases for the self-weight should be defined. (2) After running analysis, check the self-weigh from story load table via Query > Weight/Mass/Load table > Story Load table.

(3) self weight load case is used in floor load, so it has floor load value. And self_frame is used in self weight load, so you obtain the value in self weight column.
Thank you.

Best regards,
