Add Region Uniform Pressure Load dialog

This dialog is used to apply a uniform pressure load to the selected regions.

Opens when the Uniform Pressure tool is selected on the Region ribbon tab from 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.
Pressure he magnitude of the uniform pressure over the surface region. Negative values may be used to reverse the direction
Direction Select the direction in which the forces act:
  • Global X / Y / Z – to apply loads parallel to the selected global axis.
  • Local x / y / z – to apply loads parallel to the selected local axis. Local x loads are axial to a member.
Note: Loads assigned each time this dialog is selected must all act in the same direction (either positive or negative). To assign loads in different directions, the tool may be used again for the same load group or in different load groups.
