How To Add Remote Force In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)

In this article we will show about how to add Remote Forces to tha parts in ANSYS Mechanical. Remote Forces are generally used for attaching forces to geometric features that real application of force can be far away from the this geometric feature. For calculate the moments that originates from remote forces, Remote Force application in ANSYS Mechanical is very useful tool. Also Remote Force is a boundry condition for finite element methods whixh makes Remote Forces is very important to define correctly on geometry.

You will learn how to apply a Remote Force to geometrical feature in ANSYS Mechanical.


How To Add Remote Force In ANSYS Mechanical?

Click on Remote Force

To add or apply Remote Force on a geometry in ANSYS Mechanical, you need to right click on analysis system(Static Structural in here) and hover the cursor on Insert button as shown by red arrow above. Click on Remote Force as shown by red box from the list.

Select the geometric feature.

Select the geometric feature to apply Remote Force then click Apply on Geometry tab as shown by red arrow above.

Enter your Remote Force place in X, Y and Z.

You could define the remote force’s place in 3D space by enterin X, Y and Z coordinates in ANSYS Mechanical.  We entered 5, 5 and 10 mm of coordinates respectively.

Select Remote Force application method

Select the Remote Force application method from either components or vector. If you select components, you need to enter the force values in X, Y and Z coordinate values individually. If yıu select the Vector method, you need to enter a force value and a vector in ANSYS Mechanical.

Remote Force application in ANSYS Mechanical

As you can see above we defined 500, 600 and 700 Newtons of forces in each coordinates respectively as shown in red box. Also you can see the place and resultant of the entered values as shown by red arrow. The remote force’s place is in the 3D space in ANSYS Mechanical.

Applying remote force to a geometric feature in ANSYS Mechanical is very easy as you can see.
