Distributed forces


The distributed forces are given by the following equation:





which can be detailed for a constant thickness n-noded izoparametric finite element as:





where Qx and Qy are the components of distributed load along the x and y axis, and because the thickness of the finite element is constant (h=const)p_36_image006 we obtain:
