Wind Load on Partially Open and Partially Enclosed Structures

Wind Load on Partially Open and Partially Enclosed Structures

(OP)
I'm wondering if there is a way to apply an area load that is only picked up by the projected area of members. I know RISA has an "Open Structure" feature in its area loads application, but I want to apply different loads at different "walls" to account for different windward/leeward pressures as well as different internal pressures. I am currently applying line loads based on the member width which is quite tedious.

Nevermind, I found you can do it through distributed load.
