What are Span Loads and how to use them?
Remark: What is a span?
In SCIA Engineer a span means one of the following:
- if a 1D member is defined by means of a polyline , the span is the segment between two adjacent vertices,
- if a linked node (or several of these) is defined on a 1D member, the span is either (i) the segment between two adjacent linked nodes, or (ii) between a linked node and the adjacent end-node of the 1D member,
- any combination of the above mentioned options.
