Hi.

This is my first post. In many cases I find out the way, thanks to another post but now i cant.

I have curved beam. I need apply radial force like in my picture. Have a look.

I set beam then ref. is plane on the top of beam. Everything seems fine.

Click OK and pop up says: "choose ref. plane". I have to set up my force perpendicular to tangent arc!

I think there is some trick but cant find out how.

I know about, convert beam into sheel and then i can apply my force correct but i need it in beam. Is it possible?

Thanks a lot.

What real world scenario is this supposed to represent?
