Hypermesh MSC Nastran Preload

Hypermesh MSC Nastran Preload

Hypermesh MSC Nastran Preload

Good afternoon,

I've been working with HyperMesh and Optistruct for some time however in my current project I'm required to use MSC Nastran (little to no experience).
I'm struggling to apply preload since the Preload Manager is not available on the MSC Nastran profile. I've searched on the MSC Nastran 2021 Quick Reference Guide for some tips but got no lucky.
The PTFORCE syntax used by Optistruct is not available on MSC Nastran.
Am I missing something completely? Is there any tab I'm not seeing?

Thank you in advance for your support,
