Application of force on select area

Recommended Posts

Hello , 

I am doing the structural analysis of the disc and i need to apply forces on a particular area ( where the calliper is attached)  again and again with different element sizes. I want to enquire is there a way so that i can simply select the area (maybe a predefined surface or something )  and the software can pick up nodes in that particular area?

You can apply force on hm entity type "surfs" , not only "elems", when exporting solver deck hm will map force on surfs to elems attached to those surfs

You have to associate nodes of elems to the surfs (panel geom>node edit>associate), in order to map forces successfully
