*BATCHCVTMVLTRC
(Batch
Conversion from MVLRC to Static Load) 
A
number of loading conditions of different moving load
locations are converted
into static
loadings and produced as model files of the MCT type.
This is an
extremely useful feature when a number of loading conditions
need to be converted.
Conversion
is carried out by loading locations, result types, etc.
all at once.
