I've underestood that solid 3D models don't have rotational DoFs and therfore cannot have applied moments. When specifying a moment in Mechanical GUI, Ansys will somehow convert this to forces on the selected nodes. How does this process work? The reason I ask is that there is no way of selecting a location for the moment, only a geometry to scope to.
I've created two models to investigate: one where the moment is simply scoped to the circular hole and one where a remote point is created at the center of the hole and moment scoped to this point. For the first one, the moment vector shows up near the bottom of the hole.March 21, 2022 at 4:25 pmViewing 1 reply thread
