StructuralLoadCase

Load case

Individual loads are not defined "freely". They must be included in load cases. A load case is a group, commonly used to group loads from the same action source. The load cases correspond with the professional terminology specified in national technical standards dealing with loads of civil engineering structures. The application of load cases follows the load management procedures that are usual and also obligatory in civil engineering practice.

yes
Define subtype of load. Depends on Action type property.
Subtypes for Permanent:
Self weight; Others ;Prestress; Standard
Use value "Self weight" only for cases of automatically generated load.
If your app is exporting self weight load as load objects, use type "Standard" and use field "Description" to carry the information it is Self weight (example: "Self weight load impulses")
Subtypes for Variable:
Others; Dynamic; Static; Temperature; Wind; Snow; Maintenance; Fire; Moving; Seismic; Standard
Subtypes for Accidental:
Others; Dynamic; Static; Temperature; Wind; Snow; Maintenance; Fire; Moving; Seismic; Standard
