Wind wizard pressure loading

This method of loading is typically used for enclosed structures and requires at least one wall panel, or roof panel to exist before it becomes available.

In this method, you 'clothe' the structure in wind and roof panels, and then create a wind model by running the Wind wizard.

The wizard creates wind zone loads that are subsequently decomposed to the structure during analysis. Wind loadcases are then created for the required directions.

This method can also be used to optionally apply loads to members marked as "open structure".

Note: The Wind wizard is not currently available for the AS:1170.2 wind code variant.
