[GEN/Load]How to Apply Wind/Seismic Loads to Floors that Don't Consider Floor Diaphragm

Question

How do I auto-generate wind or seismic loads on floors that don't consider Floor Diaphragm?

 

Answer

The ability to automatically generate wind and seismic loads for floors that do not consider Floor Diaphragm is new in V770.

 

Using the "Consider Wind and Seismic Loads for Flexible Floors" option in the Building Control dialogue box will automatically generate wind and seismic loads for floors that do not consider floor diaphragms, just as it does for floors that do.

However, the loads are generated in the form of distributed concentrated loads instead of a single concentrated load.
