AddLoads
2D/3D

AddLoads is an option for SetLoads that specifies whether the supplied loads are to replace the existing load vector or be added to the existing load vector.

AddLoads->True causes SetLoads to add the specified loads to the loads that are currently set.
• Errant load settings can be induced with AddLoads->True by accidentally running SetLoads more than once with the same loads, thereby multiplying their magnitude.
• The default setting is AddLoads->False.
• See also:
Force, Moment.

Further Examples

Load the Modeler2D package and define a simple model.

Here are the loads that are currently applied to the link body.

Loads can be added to the existing loads with the AddLoads option.

Without AddLoads the existing loads will be replaced.
