Pressure Load on a Structure

Good morning,

 

I am trying to do a simulation on a structure by applying Dead Load, Live Load, Snow Load, Wind Load. All these loads are pressure loads. My first problem is that I don't have the option for pressure load when I right click on external load.

I want to apply a load of 9 kpa to each floors and 6.7 kpa to the roof

If possible I would also like to apply a wind load (as a pressure force without using flow analysis) that looks like this:

The units of the wind load shown is kpa and is applied to the entire side of the structure which is 20.45m high.

How can I apply all these loads on my structure?

 

Thank you

 

Kevin
