hydrostatic pressure


New member

how can I enter a hydrostatic pressure over a surface?

say top is12 psi, bottom is say, 50 psi the distribution is a linear distribution

I tried using a surface load-under distribution I use force per unit area, then interpolate over entity-when asking me to define two points I ceate 2 new points, then when trying to preview it says please define 2 points

I get confused when I am prompted to enter 2 points-seems like the points I create-top of surface ( 0 pressure)and bottom (50)are not the right one-pro e is not accepting them

also, where do i enter the 12 and 50 pressure values?

ok-Ifigurd it out-add 2 points means to add datum points, then put the values in each given box
