Determination of sum of loads

Recommended Posts

I am solving a frequency response simulation. The loads that are frequency dependent are mapped on to the ID surface, as shown in fig.

How to determine the sum of the displayed loads as shown in figure.?

Hi Karth 

 

You can check that using Tool<<Count<<BC Entities<<make sure the loads are selected<<Right click on loads select displayed.

Make Sure that in model browser all the frequency dependent loads are displayed.

Hi,

I think I have not made the question clear.

The option you had suggested highlights the total count of loads.

My requirement is to determine the sum of magnitudes of the displayed loads (eg. 1000N or 250 N etc.)

I believe you applied load on the nodes.Is that a static load or Dynamic load?If its is static then just count the no of nodes where you applied load....Ensure that load magnitude is uniform or not..If uniform, then just multiply the load magnitude with no of nodes where you apply static load.

The loads are applied on the nodes through an fem file that was exported from Flux software. The loads are frequency based loads. Each node has several loads associated with it based upon the frequency.
