To Define Centrifugal Loads
1. Click Home > Centrifugal. The Centrifugal Load dialog box opens.
2. Enter a name for the load, or use the default name.
3. Select an existing load set from the Member of Set area or click New to create a new load set.
4. To change the default WCS to a UCS, click Selected in the CSYS area and select a Cartesian coordinate system on the model.
5. Select one of the following from the Angular Velocity and Angular Acceleration lists to specify magnitude and direction:
Dir Points & Mag
Dir Vector & Mag
6. Specify the directional values. You can enter a value, mathematical expression, or parameter name in these fields.
7. If you want to display the load that you just defined, click Preview. The software displays the angular velocity and angular acceleration direction using arrows.
8. Click OK to accept the dialog box.
If the software identifies any problems with the way you defined the load, it displays a message box informing you of the situation.
If the software does not encounter any definition problems, it applies the loads that you specified. The software also adds a load icon to the geometry you are loading.
