How applying load on nodes

How applying load on nodes

How applying load on nodes

Hello there,

I really need you to help me because it's part of my Master's dissertation that is due next month...

So, I would like to know how I can select several nodes and apply a force on them.

I guess I need to develop a set node first but I don't manage to select several nodes.

Could you tell me how can I do this simple task.

PS: I wanna use nodes from shell element

Thank you, I really hope hearing from you soon guys

RE: How applying load on nodes

Hello guys,

I solved the previous issue by using a segment and defining the nodes used to create the given segment.

Now, I am facing a new issue being that after creating the segment, LS-Dyna tells me that the segment doesn't lie on structural elements.
I don't understand as I am using the nodes from the geometry.

Could you please help me guys.

I hope hearing from you soon

Many thanks
