Pressure loads: How to check which element are loaded?

Recommended Posts



I have imported a FEM in HyperMesh 2017 where there different parts loaded by pressure.

The meshes are close. So it is difficult in the viewport to clearly view on which part the pressure is applied.

Thus I am looking for a way to isolate the element loaded by a specific pressure loadcollector.

I find no way through the GUI.

So I guess the solution is through scripting but I do not find the way to script it.


Thank you in advance for your help!

Thank you for your support.

This option is very usefull.

However I would like to look at a specific component. By default this function create face of all meshed components and display the contour on thoses faces. I would like to be able to display the pressure on one specific component.

Do you know a way to do that?

This is strange- it works on my end. Right-click the component of interest in the model browser and select isolate.

As a workaround, you can place loads acting on the component of interest in a separate load collector and then select only this load collector during contour loads review.

You can also find loads acting on a specific component by right-clicking component in the model browser and choosing XRef entities, which will list all relevant loads (can be isolated).
