Hi everyone 

wanted to simulate a 6 meter pole. There is just a concentrated force applied on the top of the pole and creates bending. The maximum stress is on the cutout For the pole door which is just one meter above the ground level. My concern is just the stress in this area but even if I apply the mesh control around the cutout and use coarse mesh anywhere else, the number of mesh will be millions as the pole is 6 meter long. I tried to cut the length of the pole close to the cut out and apply the equivalent force and moment but do not know how to apply the moment and if it is the right way to simulate it or not. Any opinions?
