      A 2 mm rectangular plate 24(L) mm x 16 (W) mm with four holes as shown in figure. Radii of holes are 2 mm and center point of the holes are 4mm away from the nearest edges. The four holes constrained as fixed supports and the edges are free. A moment of 7500 N.mm is acting on the X axis. Is it possible to find local moents acting on each elements/nodes? Is there have any possible way to calculate stiffness for the plate in relation with the moment values?

      Hi, maybe you can define a remote point at the center of the plate and calculate rotational DOF on the remote point. Then the stiffness for the plate in the rotational direction may be treated as moment / rotation angle.n
