The "Applied forces" frame contains a table with a list of forces acting on a structure. Adding forces is performed in the "New force" dialog window. The input forces can also be edited on the desktop with the help of active objects.
Applied forces represent an additional load on the structure of the wall, braced sheeting or MSE wall. We can model such as an anchoring crash barrier, crash vehicle, load from billboards and hoardings etc. Program doesn`t adjust the applied forces in the calculation in any way except multiplying them with the corresponding coefficients according to the selected type of load (EN1997, LRFD).
External load acting to the ground surface is necessary to define as a surcharge.
