Add Surface Uniform Pressure Load dialog

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

Opens when the Pressure tool is selected on the Surface 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.
Pressure The magnitude of the uniform pressure over the surface. Negative values may be used to reverse the direction.
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 surface axis. Local x and y loads are in the plane of the surface.
