FAQ 34. How to Identify the resultant/summation of applied load

Recommended Posts

Go to BCs>checks>load summation (you can also use summary of loads from post page)

This gives the resultant value at the origin (default) you can also calculate the resultant value at the required location.

May I have a question?

For forces on geometry, such as a surface, how to Identify the load summation? The way you pointed out above doesn't work for that case.

 

Thanks.

Hi Huynh,

The force from a pressure is calculated by taking the pressure components and multiplying them by the appropriate element’s face area.  The corresponding forces are then assumed to be applied at the face centroid.

Also attaching a document on Loads Summary for your reference.
