Here, we explain how to define nodal force in ANSYS® Mechanical to bodies and geometries.
How To Define Nodal Forces In ANSYS® Mechanical?
To define a nodal force, right-click on the analysis in ANSYS® Mechanical, then hover your mouse on the ‘Insert’ tab. And click on ‘Nodal Force’ to define nodal forces.
When you are defining the boundary conditions on a nodal basis, you can not select geometries in conventional methods. You need to create named selectionson a nodal basis, and you need to select this named selection like above.
To do it, when you are creating named selections, select the nodes that you want to define your nodal force, as in the example above.
- Divide Load by Nodes: If you want to divide the entered load or force value on selected nodes, you can use this option.
Defining nodal forces in ANSYS® Mechanical is very simple like above.
