PLOAD1 Create and Review

Create and review pressure loads on 1D elements that are fully or partially loaded.

From the menu bar, click Aerospace > Loads/BCs > PLOAD1 Create and Review.

This tool can also be used to edit or review the PLOAD1 cards imported from a solved Nastran or OptiStruct data file.

Inputs are 1D elements and the start/finish local parametric values and the pressure at those points (start and end pressures).

Load type indicates the direction (FX, FY, FZ, and so on) and the Scale factor determines if it is based on parametric (fraction-FR) or based on actual length (LE).
