Hello all -
I've created a welded stand that I would like to perform a static simulation on. I have created the stand using weldments, and fixed the bottom joints. I then applied a force 10,000 lbs downward across the 4 top frame members.
When I expand the "External Loads" item in the feature manager tree, I see that it lists the load as "Force-1 (;Per item: 10000lbf:)"
My question is, am I applying a total of 10,000 pounds of force at the top of this stand, or am I applying 40,000 pounds as the entry under External Loads in the feature manager implies?
