i m working with pro/e wildfire2.0. In mechanical its easy to apply
bearing load in integrated mode. But bearingload icon disapears when i
start with FEM mode...? can u sggest me how to apply bearing load in
FEM mode if it is also to be applied in a particular direction...?
Bearing loads in FEM mode are not applicable because for h-elemts forces are applied at the nodes. Therefore, the load is distributed accordingly throughout each node of the are of application. In P-elementsloads can actually be distributed through the edges and faces of the element which ads flexibility for non-uniform loads. In the past I seenpeople using what is call a spider web ( beam elements)to distribute the load in h-elmentsshells or plates. May be you can use this same technique.
