This page is devoted to frequently asked questions (FAQ) related to lanes.

How are moving loads redistributed from lanes to frame objects?

Each lane is discretized according to its geometry and the plan-view intersection between layout lines and structural objects. The lane influence line, or surface, is then interpolated from the set of lane-load points created from the discretization. The moving loads applied to the lane are distributed to lane-load points according to tributary area, then redistributed, through lane-to-object connections, to the joints of frame objects.

Please see the Lane discretization, Lane-load point, and Lane-to-object connection articles for additional information.
