Define and apply loads
Use the Loads > Loads - Point command to define a new point load, as shown in Figure 2:
Figure 2 - Define point load
Use the Bridge > Loads > Point Loads command to assign the previously defined point load, as shown in Figure 3:
Figure 3 - Assign point load
Using a similar approach, define and apply line and area loads.
The moment diagrams below (Figures 4-6) depict the midspan moment expected.
