Surface Load

The surface load is used to apply a surface traction on faces of a structure. The user defines each traction component in global coordinate system with the unit of force per area. It is a distributed load and the value for each surface element is proportional to its area.

This load is equivalent to a force load if one applies a surface load which equals the total force divided by the face area.
