Loading a torus

Hi all,

 

I am designing a torus based structure and want to laod it with a radial load diametrically opposite the reaction force. Then re-run with the loading in four directions.

 

How do I apply the loads and reactions to the inside of the curved surface of the torus?

 

My initial runs, I generated a flat surface on the inside of the ring, extruded into the ring, and applied the loads to that surface. I am not convinced that this is accurate but I can't see a way of applying the loading to that surface.

 

Thanks in advance,

Neil
