For distributed loads specify position of the start or the load, the load intensity at the start and end, and the load leng
For Point loads and moments specify the position and magnitude
Positions and load lengths are measured along the beam axis
Distributed and point load direction is either "X" (horizontal) or "Y" (vertical)
