Beam Partial Uniform Loads

(Mgoldenberg2011) #1

Hi,

I am still a little new and I am wondering if there is an efficient way to create a partial uniform load in Karamba without splitting the beam into smaller segments and assigning each segment a unique ID to use with the uniform line load component. I have made one long beam and shattered it into segments, and I want to be able to isolate one segment and place a uniform load only on that segment. Attached is my grasshopper definition.

Hi,
at the moment (Karamba 1.3.1) the best option is to split the beam into pieces and use the element indexes to place the loads (see attached file: partial uniform load_cp.gh (17.8 KB)
).
Best,
Clemens
