Pressure load to a curved surface

Experimenter
Experimenter

Dear all,

for simulation of wind loads I am trying to apply some pressure load to a curved surface. Unfortunately NX8.0 is not considering the projected area but the circumferential surface.

Do somebody know how to solve this problem?

With best regards,

Michael

The difficult part is trying to come up with an analytical way to compute the projected surface area. If you can figure that out, then maybe it is possible to do this with a spatial field. Otherwise you will have to construct a projected face and determine the projected area. Then modify the pressure magnitude according to the projected area:

 

ProjectedPressure = Pressure*ProjectedArea/Area
