structure beam apply command

Syntax

structure beam apply f1 f2 <range>

Assign uniform applied distributed loads. Loads (force per unit length) are applied to all elements in the range. Positive loads act in the positive $$y$$- or $$z$$-directions (f1 and f2, respectively) of the element system and maintain this orientation during large-strain motion. Point loads are applied at the nodes using the command structure node apply.
