Hi,

i want to apply a hydrostatic pressure in a tank volume meshed in shell elements.

i did pick the mesh on the volum of the tank and applied the hydrosttaic pressure

from UGI, but i am bit confused about the vector direction.

does the vector direction control the depth of the tank? does it need to be default

(-Z)?

when i change the vector from -Z into -X the value of the pressure per unit area

change in PLOAD4 card.

Many thanks,

From the NX Help for the Liquid Surface block of the Hydrostatic Pressure dialog

box:

Specify Vector: Defines the direction downward from

the surface of the liquid. The default

direction is –Z.

Specify Point: Specifies the location of the surface

of the liquid. The default location

is (0,0,0).

In other words, you're simply defining a plane representing the fluid surface by

specifying a point and normal vector. The vector points "down" into the fluid.

Thanks Jim,

i am just wondering whether the hydrostatic pressure is the right option to model

a fluid (water) pressure inside a reservoir volume.

i need to apply a pressure into the shell elements on the reservoir surfaces.

Many Thanks,

If you want the pressure to vary with the fluid depth, then hydrostatic pressure

is what you need.
