Gravity Load

Simulate the force of gravity as it affects your model.

Only one gravity load can be applied to a model. Gravity load acts on all unsuppressed parts of the model.

  1. On the Project Tree, open the Analysis Workbench.
  2. In the workbench toolbar, click the (Gravity load) icon.
  3. In the dialog, specify directional components of the load in the X, Y, and Z fields.
    Note: Enter negative values to specify gravitational forces that oppose the coordinate direction.
  4. Specify amplification factor for the gravity load magnitude.
    Note: The default magnitude is specified as a ratio of 1G gravitational load.
  5. Click OK.
