Hi BeMa86,


Do you want to apply pressure load radially on a bearing surface? 


You can apply pressure load using equation. Here are the steps:


1) Create a cylindrical system using systems panel.

2) Assign all nodes to the newly created system and do a set reference

3) Go to analysis page> Pressure panel

4) Select the bearing elements

5) Change the input type to Equation and enter Equation= Cos(y)

6) Change the orientation to N1, N2 and N3 from Normal and right below it select the cylindrical system

7) Click Create
