To Define Centrifugal Loads—Topology Optimization
1. Click Home > Loads > Centrifugal. The Centrifugal Load dialog box opens.
2. Enter a name for the load, or use the default name. Click the color swatch next to Name if you want to change the color of the constraint icon.
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 World coordinate system to a user-defined coordinate system, click Selected in the Coordinate System 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. Click OK to accept and save the load.
If problems with the definition of the load are identified, a message appears.
If there are no problems with the definition, then the loads are applied to the selected entities. A load icon is added to the geometry.
For details about loads, see the Creo Simulate help.
