I have to apply a torque of 1230 inch-lb on the hexagonal faces parallel to axis of the shaft. the other end surface of the the threaded bolt is fixed in all degrees of freedom. THis is my problem.

i have gone through the forums that discussed about the torque application in pro/mechanica and i felt that applying this load as a "moment" with "total load at a point option" seemed right.

So i created a point on the Z-axis( axis of the shaft) and applied the moment in theta direction( i used cylindrical co-ordinates). But the pro/e is prompting saying that the point cannot be on the z-axis.

though it seemed simple thisreally confused me.

So can any one please guide me regarding this.

Can i do the same as simply applying a force on these surfaces with "total load per unit area" option. If so how will the magnitude of my force change.

i will really appreciate if some one can guide me.

thanks in advance

eagerly waiting for reply.
