We have designed a frame. The usage of the frame is to tighetened a 1000kg valve on top of it, and can lift by forklift.
For the frame FEA, we decided to use beam analysis.
However, when I want to apply the total force from the valve ( 1000 kg ), I can't see a option for "Total load".
It is 1000Kg acting per item but not per total.
anybody have the idea how to make the force 1000kg acting per total, but not per item?
In beam analysis you cannot specify total load on all the nodes you have chosen to apply the force to. You have to divide the force by the number of nodes you chose manually and put that number in as the force.
