I would like to apply force or pressure which is a function of the spatial parameter (theta) and time (t). How can I insert such kind of boundary conditions for transient analysis? I can understand I can insert force either as a function of time or as a function of space. But how can I apply a force which is a function of time and space at the same time? Thanks

You'll probably need to create an APDL command object. We call lookup tables such as these "table arrays". You have to define/dimension the array prior to filling it with the *DIM command, e.g.,
will dimension a table array named array_name having m rows and n columns. Note the "12". This assumes you have defined a cylindrical coordinate system that is manually assigned a coordinate system ID number of 12 (this setting may be established in Mechanical in the Details of the cylindrical coordinate system once you create it).
So the "Y" is, in a cylindrical coordinate system, actually the theta coordinate in degrees. In my example above, the values going down each column of the planar m X n array will correspond to theta coordinates. Values going across each row correspond to time values. The Y (theta) coordinates for the lookup table are entered in the "zeroeth" column, and the time values are entered in the "zeroeth" row. "Zeroeth"? I know this sounds weird. Please locate and review the section in the MAPDL Help (image below) to try to get an idea what I'm trying to say:
