CosmosWorks 2008 linear static

Hi, I am doing a linear static structural analysis of a simple part.


In short, it is a rectangular beam with a fixed end. The load is an imposed deplacement. I wish to impose the deplacement on only a fraction of the top surface of the beam.


I am used to CATIA V5, where you can draw a surface and then use the "seam" tool to assemble the surface to the body of the part. You can then select the surface in the Analysis workbench to apply loads on that specific surface. But I do not know how to replicate this method in SolidWorks.


Anyone have a method for making a surface selectable for loads in Cosmosworks ?


I am using SolidWorks and CosmosWorks 2008.


Thank you,
