2D Frame Analysis
Analysis of a 2D frame subject to distributed loads, point loads and moments
For distributed loads specify length from the ends of the start and end of the load, and the load intensity at the start and end.
For Point loads and moments specify the position and magnitude
Positions and load lengths are measured along the beam axis, as a ratio of the beam length.
Distributed and point load direction is either "X" (horizontal) or "Y" (vertical)
