When you apply a floor load to a slab panel, the program calculates the equivalent load and apply the load to the beams bordering the slab as a uniformly distributed load. You do not have to calculate the equivalent load manually and apply them to the beams.The program will calculate the tributary area for these members and calculate the appropriate members loads. Floor load is used for two-way distribution.
