      Hi Sanjena,

        You can apply a spatial varying load or displacement by either using Tabular or Function inputs in the details view. Please see this section of the help.

        Also, what version and software are you using(Mechanical or APDL)?

        As an example, I created a simple line body in Mechanical and applied an uniformly varying line pressure, i.e., the relation is 10*x. You can see how the data/pressure load is tabulated on the right.

      Hi Sandeep Sir,

      I want to applied load in Y or Z direction, If I apply in that direction means the result is not coming it shows zero. So how to get that,?

      My problem is

      The load wants to be applied in a downward direction.

      If we applied UVL load in downward direction the result came as below

      We didn't get any deformation or shear force and bending moment in this case. Can you please help me to solve this problem.

      Thank you,

      Prabhu M.
