Add panel load dialog

This dialog is used to define a uniform pressure load over a panel.

Opens when the Assign Uniform Pressure & Direction tool is selected on the Panel ribbon tab in the Loads group.

Property Value
Load Select the load case or load group to which this load will be added.
Tip: The current load case or group is the default selection. This is displayed in the program status bar and can be changed on the View ribbon tab in the Active Load group.
Direction Select the direction in which the force acts:
  • Global X / Y / Z – to apply loads parallel to the selected global axis.
  • Local x / y / z – to apply loads parallel to the local panel axis. Panel local axes are determined the same way that surface axis are determined. Local x and y loads are in the plane of the panel load.
Magnitude The magnitude of the uniform pressure over the panel load. Negative values may be used to reverse the direction.
