Thanks for the comments! I did end up creating a solid model instead, and that seemed to fix it. I think it was indeed creating a moment from being applied off-center, maybe only the top nodes were having a load applied to them, while the other side might have had all nodes fixed. It was, like you said, just a playing around with ANSYS and ACP model, so that I could move on to a model that I require for research. nAs for the sampling point, that's something I've never used before, I'll definitely start using it now, it seems incredibly helpful. nThanks to both of you for answering and sorry for not replying until now!n
