Hi! I'm modeling a building (Flat plate system) on a non-linear analysis program. The program doesn't support loading on slab elements or any other area elements for that matter, it only has the option to load line elements and nodes. So, I'm trying to convert the slab loads into nodal loads and moments by making a model of the same building on ETABS(Please note here that I don't need nodal REACTIONS, but the loads that I assign to the nodes in the other software as APPLIED loads). How, if possible, can I do this on ETABS? Please share solutions other than ETABS if you have any. TIA
