    simulation problem with loads in 2018

    Kobus Potgieter

      Can someone help please

      Using SW 2018, I draw a simple rectangular plate.

      Fixed the ends, Applied an external force which shows in the drop down message, mesh and run.... but then a message appear.

      NO loads are applied to the model.

      Can someone help please.

          Hi Kobus,

          In the image you posted you have applied a force to a face where a "Fixed" fixture is also applied.  The force would immediately ground out on the fixture you have applied there and lead to a warning stating that there are no external loads on the model.  Edit your fixture and remove this face from the definition:

          The program should then see an external load and allow the solver to run.
