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 by using active objects.
Applied forces represent an additional load on the wall structure, sheeting, or an MSE wall. By using them, we can model e.g. an anchoring crash barrier, a crash vehicle, load from billboards and hoardings etc. The program doesn`t adjust applied forces in the calculation in any way except multiplying them with corresponding coefficients according to the selected load type (EN1997, LRFD).
It is necessary to define external load acting on the ground surface as a surcharge.
