Topic: Surface loads on mitc4shell element

Can surface loads (ConstantSurfaceLoad) be applied on mitc4shell elements? In the OOFEM Element Library Manual it says that both body and boundary loads are supported for mitc4shell element. However, I haven't managed to make it work (input file is attached). Based on the output file (the response is zero), it seems that it simply remains unloaded. As far as I understand from the previous posts, no "faces" or "boundaries" should be specified for this type of element - just a set of elements to be loaded should be related to the ConstantSurfaceLoad.
