in the Staad Pro manual it says the following about Area, One Way and Floor loads:
The following assumptions are made while transferring the area/floor load to member load:
The member load is assumed to be a linearly varying load for which the start and the end values may be of different magnitude.
I'm trying to understand if it is possible to use define a varying load. Other locations in the manual state that the pressure must be uniform. Is it possible to make the load varying?
