Defining loads for structural analysis

    • Flo K

      Hey there,

      i have created a simplified 2D model for an arch bridge (picture below) using ANSYS Mechanical APDL-Scripts and would now like to define the loads. My problem is that I have to apply linearly increasing loads to the curved arc line for a static structural analysis. Does anyone have experience with this and can help me further to define linear loads on a curved line with a script?

      Thanks, Flo
