Re: nonuniform load value at a certain location
Mladen Pavlovic Nov 24, 2015 9:13 AM (in response to Mladen Pavlovic)rereading my post i see that it is a bit confusing. Anyway. I have modeled a plate and applied arbitrary nonuniform pressure (in this specific case, varies by "depth"  Y axis).
How can i figure out the pressure value on the surface of the plate at the location marked by green arrow ? Or anywhere on the surface on which external nonuniform load is acting.
Thank you

James Riddell Nov 24, 2015 11:17 AM (in response to Mladen Pavlovic)rho*g*h is basically what is added as depth is increased (Google 'pressure on dams' using Bing)
If you have a nonlinear distribution by depth then just use the equation defining the pressure applied at depth.

Re: nonuniform load value at a certain location
Mladen Pavlovic Nov 24, 2015 11:26 AM (in response to James Riddell)this was modeled for the purpose of explaining the question. In this case it is easy to calculate when equation defining pressure is easy. I am interested to find out if there is an option to select a point on pressure acting surface to display the pressure value (at that point). the idea is to eliminate (or minimize) hand calc time and confirming that the proper equation was set up.
