Given a line meshed with, say, 100 beam elements, how can I apply a
tapered pressure from one end of the line to the other? SFBEAM is per element
(doesn't span all elements), and SFL is meant only for edges of areas.
The user wants to stay with a distributed load (pressure) and doesn't want
to apply nodal forces.

You could use SFBEAM with a table load as in the attached example.
