Applying Remote Force in Autodesk Simulation Mechanical

In Autodesk Simulation Mechanical, you can apply remote force by using the Remote Force tool. The remote force is a force that is originated from a point which is located in the space, not on the model. You can apply remote force like you apply a force on the model with the only difference that the location of the remote force origin can be anywhere in the space.

You can select surfaces for applying remote force. Regardless to the surface selected, the remote force will be distributed to all its nodes. To apply remote force, select the surface on which you want to simulates the effects of the remote force and then choose the Remote Force tool from the Loads panel of the Setup tab in the Ribbon of Autodesk Simulation Mechanical; the Creating Surface Remote Force dialog box will be displayed. By using the options available in the Creating Surface Remote Force dialog box displayed, you can specify the magnitude and location of the remote force to be applied. After specifying the required parameters for the remote force to be applied, choose the OK button from the dialog box; the remote force will be applied. Below figure shows the model after applying the remote force.
