How to input compressive load under the anchoring plate to the model

The stress in the concrete receives from the analysis in the IDEA StatiCa Connection. Due to the possibility to display the effective areas we are able to integrate the stress on each effective area and get the forces. Due to the fact that the stress is constant along with the height of the effective area we use uniform load to simulate the effect of stress under the anchoring plate.
