Similar to my other post, I'm trying to simulate a load pulling down on a hook. I thought it might be more appropriate to open another post since it's a somewhat generic question.

I'm comparing the results I get from exerting force on the same surface area with and without split. For instance, if I exert 50N on these two faces only, I get up to 300MPa.

However, if those two faces are split into 6 and these 6 faces are chosen, I get up to 850MPa

How come the results can be so different when they're effectively the same faces, same area?

Thanks

Because you have selected 50N

per itemin the force options. Selecttotalin the force options and the result will be equal.2 faces is 100N and 6 faces is 300N
