Individual point loads are objects contained within the point loads object. Each point load inside the point loads object should be identified by a unique positive integer.

Input | Type | Description |
---|---|---|

point_loads | Object | Each point load is defined by an object with properties depending on the location that the point load is applied. Point loads are defined by their location type (node or member), magnitude, and load group. |

Point Load (node) Properties | Type | Value | Description |
---|---|---|---|

type | String | - | The location where the point load is located. "n" = located on a node. |

node | Number | - | Contextual. Only include the property "node" if applying the point load to a node. The value should be the node ID. |

x_mag | Number | Force | The magnitude of the point load force along x axis. |

y_mag | Number | Force | The magnitude of the point load force along y axis. |

z_mag | Number | Force | The magnitude of the point load force along z axis. |

load_group | Number | - | The load group which the point load is to be grouped to. |

Point Load (member) Properties | Type | Value | Description |
---|---|---|---|

type | String | - | The location where the point load is located. "m" = located somewhere along the member. |

member | Number | - | Contextual. Only include the property "member" if applying the point load somewhere along a member. The value should be the member ID. |

position | Number | - | Contextual. Only include the property "position" if applying the point load somewhere along a member. This is the position along the member where the point load is applied, measured as a percentage along the member. |

x_mag | Number | Force | The magnitude of the point load force along x axis. |

y_mag | Number | Force | The magnitude of the point load force along y axis. |

z_mag | Number | Force | The magnitude of the point load force along z axis. |

load_group | Number | - | The load group which the point load is to be grouped to. |
