To Define a Force Measure
This procedure assumes you selected the Force quantity on the Measure Definition dialog box.
1. Select Reaction At Constraint, Resultant or Spring.
2. Select one of the following components: Magnitude, X, Y, Z.
3. For the components X, Y, or Z, select a coordinate system.
* For Reaction At Constraint and Resultant force measures that reference a cylindrical or spherical coordinate system, you must also select a reference point.
4. If Reaction At Constraint is the quantity, select constraints.
5. If Spring is the quantity, select a spring.
6. If Resultant is the quantity, select one of the following in the Spatial Evaluation area:
Click and select the geometric entities on the model.
7. If you select Spring check the Time/Frequency Eval check box to define a dynamic analysis.
8. Review the list box in the Valid for Analysis Types area of the dialog box to determine which types of analyses are valid for the measure.
9. If you selected Resultant or Spring, check the Visible at higher assembly level check box to make the defined measures visible at a higher assembly level as well.
10. Click OK. The custom measures are listed on the Measures dialog box.
Return to To Define Measures for Structural Analyses or Force.
