The field architecture discussed here applies to loads on element faces and heat sources per unit of mass. Consequently, it is used for the following keyword cards:

• *DFLUX: S and BF load labels
• *TRANSFORMF: T load labels. This label only applies to CFD-calculations, for which transformations are applied to element faces (and not to nodes as for others types of calculations).

It does not apply to gravity and centrifugal loads. These are treated separately.

In the subroutine calinput.f, the distributed loads are ordered according to the element number they apply to. Accordingly, the first load definition in the input deck does not necessarily correspond to the first row in fields nelemload, xload, iamload, xloadact and sideload.

As an example, assume the following distributed loads:

*DLOAD
10,P3,8.3
*FILM
6,F4,273.,10.
12,F4FC,20,5.
