      How to apply hydrostatic pressure in APDL? I am modelling a floating structure and I want to study how hydrostatic pressure influences the deformation behavior.nnKind regards for your helpn

      ,n Hydrostatic Pressure is applied directly on to the element faces using the SFCONTROL, SFE,,PRES and SFFUN (ansys.com) commands. Please check the help documentation links for details.nRegards,nIshan.https://forum.ansys.com/discussion/3978/how-to-access-the-ansys-online-helpn

      Hi @1shan, thank you for your reply.nI was currently trying to model the hydrostatic pressure as an elastic support, as described on the following page: https://simutechgroup.com/a-normal-and-tangential-elastic-foundation-in-ansys-workbench-mechanical/ . However, I am not really certain about this method. Can you explain what the differences are between applying direct pressure to the surface, using one of the by you mentioned commands, compared to modelling an elastic support?nThanks a lot!nRegardsn
