Auto-calculation of self-weight of discontinuity regions
The functionality Self-weight is available for all structures modeled as a whole except parts of the beams with trimmed ends. It works similarly to Surface load type, the value of the self-weight is calculated automatically for each part of the structure according to its real thickness. The Self-weight is defined as a Permanent load case.
If the model contains more regions (walls), the self-weight can be defined for each region separately. There are options for assigning the self-weight for a particular region or for all of them at the same time.
Properties such as the direction of gravitation and gravitational constant can be changed in the Settings.
