Need help applying Spatial Load Distribution

Pioneer

Hello there I have a doghnut shape and want to add a distributed load to the indicated face simulating the load distribution a softs ling or load strap would impose on the doughnut. My first thought was to add a mesh point outside and connect via RBE3 element, but I think this will not give me the wanted distribution. This should perhaps have a more parabolic looking load distribution?  Do you have any idea on how I can add this function?  The global x-axis has its origin in the centre of the doughnut and passes through the geometric center of the marked face below. The angle from right to left is app. 20 degrees or so.
