Correct - you can add the beams to a SET, and then apply the *LOAD_BEAM_SET to the set. An example could be like this say:n*LOAD_BEAM_SETn$# esid dal lcid sf n 111 1 3 1.0nThe beam set is:n*SET_BEAMn$# sid n 111n$# k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 k7 k8n 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8n 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16n 17 18 19 20nTHe load curve (lcid) is:n*DEFINE_CURVEn$ ID sidr sfa sfo offa offo dattyp unused1n$# lcid sidr sfa sfo offa offo dattyp lcintn 3 0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0 0n$ a1 o1 unused1n$# a1 o1 n 0.0 -999.0n$ a1 o1 unused1n 0.001 -999.0nHope this example helpsnFor more info though see the keyword manual of lsdyna.nAll the bestnnErikn
