How to apply self-weight

Question:

Dear Technical support:


I defined a load case for type of load: self-weight. My questions are that:


(1)  I have no way to apply the defined self-weight load case (three of them) to selected elements.


(2) Is it possible to add normal dead loads in the self-weight load case for selected elements? There loads are considered additional loads from other components (SDL), but are t he weight of the permanent materials.


I get zero deflection and zero element forces with my definitions.  Please help.


Regards,




Answer:

Hi,

I am sorry for the late response. It is Thanksgiving holiday in Korea so we are running on limited staff. In midas Civil, Self Weight load case is always applied to all the elements. It is not possible to apply it for selected elements. We will consider to improve our product on this in the future release.
