I have carried out Static Structural analysis on a line geometry (beam elements). The applied load is standard earth gravity. I have been asked to figure out if the normal force is within the section of the elements by calculating the eccentricity.
I have searched online, and I have not found anything relevant. Is there a possibility to do something like this in Ansys?

Please reply with an image of the mesh with Thick Beams turned on, the direction of gravity, the supports, and the "normal" force result. Do you mean Force Reaction? What do you mean by normal?

Hello Peter, sorry for my very 'confused' question earlier. You could ignore it. I know it did not make much sense.
But do you know if I am applying 'Standard Earth Gravity' on a structure such as the one above (made out of many parts, but shared topology), does the gravitational load apply on each individual part's centre of gravity? Or how is the Standard Erath Gravity applied by Ansys on a structure above?

Yes, gravity works on all the mass in a model.
