Assign load forces to the frame objects

Assign load forces to the frame objects

Assign load forces to the frame objects

(OP)
Hi. I'm developing a model in ETABS using API with Python.
I have created and assigned load forces like SDEAD(super dead),Ex,Ey,LRED (Reducible Live) and etc,.
As you can see in the first and second picture, load forces have successfully assigned.


The problem is that these loads (Created with code) seem not to be applied to the frames; because when I try to analyze and design the model, there are no results for member force diagrams or Story Response Plots for these load forces as you can see in below pictures (there is only diagrams and response plots for "Dead" load that is not added by code.)

Do you have any idea about this problem?

RE: Assign load forces to the frame objects

can you share the code that you have used to apply the loads to the frames. Was it done using FrameObj or DatabaseTables?

@rscassar
It's done using FrameObj.

CODE --> python

ret=SapModel.FrameObj.SetLoadDistributed("Element_Name","Load_Pattern_Name",1,2,0,1,Load_Value,Load_Value,"Local")
