Hello again,


I would like try my luck here again with question number 2. Again, I have HSFLD element that works completely fine. The element has pressure node Q. Using BF APDL command, I insert body temperature load to that node Q. The simulation runs.


Now, if I had "large deflections" activated in static structural, the structure deforms due to the temperature load (pressure increases).


If I have linear analysis, nothing happens. The body load however appears normally in the solution output but does not result in any deformation in structure. 


I have tried everything but nothing seems to help. Furthermore, I cannot apply the BODY LOAD via GUI because I cannot make a named selection of the pressure node Q because it is created in the PREP7.
