Within Revit Structure you create point loads, line loads, and area loads. These loads are defined by load cases as defined within your project. The load cases can then be grouped into load combinations for lateral and gravity cases. These loads are diagrammatically placed into the Revit Structure model in the default analytical views or new analytical views you make during the modeling process.

The analysis model coexists with the physical model but is not necessarily identical. For many reasons the analytical model can be simplified or altered ...
