How to apply a force or displacement at an angle in explicit dynamics

    • TomPhemmy

      How can I apply a force or a displacement to a face at an angle in explicit dynamics? I see that displacement and forces can only be defined by components x,y,z and not in cylindrical form like F(r,theta). Is there a way around this? I use ansys 19.0

      Thompson, this is from the manual:

      Note:  Cylindrical coordinate systems are not supported by the Explicit Dynamics solvers, but may be used for some postprocessing operations.

      See if you can do the calculations outside and insert tabular data?
