Pressure units for a 1D edge on a structural model?
4 views (last 30 days)
I have a 2D structural model that I have modelled with standard SI units and I intend to apply a force distributed evenly over an edge in the model - in essence a pressure but in 1D.
What are the units for the pressure if I apply a pressure to the edge of the model?
If I wanted to apply a force of say 1e4N, over the edge, then how could this be achieved, as Force loads must be specified on a vertex?

When you are solving a 2-D structural probelm (either plane stress or plane strain approximation), unit thickness is implicit. Can can scale the load to account for finite thickness based on this.
