How To Assign A Force In ANSYS Mechanical(Illustrated Expression)
In this article of Mechanical Base, we will show you how to assign a force to the surfaces or other features of ANSYS Mechanical parts. In finite elements analysis, force assignation to a part to analysed is a boundry condition. So specifying boundry conditions in a very well way is very important thing to obtain very correct finite element analysis. You will learn about how to assign forces to the various features of parts such as edges, vertexes and faces.

How To Assign Forces To Parts In ANSYS Mechanical?
To assign a force to your part in ANSYS Mechanical, you need to open the Mechanical interface. In this Mechanical interface, you need to right click to your analysis system(in this example, it is Static Structural) as shown above. Then you need to hover your Mouse at Insert as shown, then click on the Force as shown by blue box above in ANSYS Mechanical.
Select your feature in your part such as selected as a face as in this example above as shown by blue arrow. The geometry selection as done by Geometry tab in force assignation command as shown by red arrow. When you select the face to apply force, click apply in Geometry tab in ANSYS Mechanical.
The assignation of force velue is could done by vector or components. You select one of these methods as shown by red box above to assign your force value in ANSYS Mechanical. For example we selected to define our force value as components in ANSYS Mechanical.
We assigned our force to the top face of the parts by entering 500 Newton values to the each X, Y and Z components as shown by red box above. Then you can see the direction of defined force as shown by red arrow according to the values that entered by you to the ANSYS Mechanical.
Also you can assign force by selecting Vectors method in ANSYS Mechanical that you need only define a force value then define a vector from the features of the part in ANSYS Mechanical.
The definiton of force in ANSYS Mechanical is simple as like that.
