For my university project I have created a section of a wind turbine blade and created three models with different internal structures. I have calculated the X and Y components of the loads would be experienced by the blade caused
This load varies along the span of the blade, and I am look to apply multiple loads, in the x and y direction along the span of the blade.
I know I should also apply a displacement boundary condition on the cross section of either face however I'm not exaclty sure the best way to do this.
So far I have applied a pressure on the top face, and defined it by the X and Y direction, which has allowed me to at least prove the structural components are improving the strength of the blade.
Just wondering the best way to apply evenly spaces X and Y loads incrementally along the blade.
Any help appreciated.

You can apply the load as tabular data. Create a table in Excel based on your calculations snd then just paste the same.
For displacements, you can define functions as well.
