# MOMENT1

Bulk Data Entry Defines a static moment by specification of a value and two grid points, which determines the direction.

Attention: Valid for Implicit and Explicit Analysis

It can also be used to define the EXCITEID field (Amplitude A) of dynamic loads in RLOAD1, RLOAD2, TLOAD1 and TLOAD2 Bulk Data Entries.

## Comments

1. The static moment applied to grid point G is:(1)
$\stackrel{\to }{\text{m}}=\text{M}\stackrel{\to }{\text{N}}$

Where, $\stackrel{\to }{\text{N}}$ is a unit vector parallel to a vector from G1 to G2.
