Body Force

If the element is subjected to pressure load, enter the values of the pressure at the nodes. The pressure will be assumed to be applied on the full physical length of the element, not the projected length. Terminate with a blank card. The body force will be assigned to the aforementioned load-time function.

1-5   Number of the global axis to indicate the 

pressure direction

6-15 		 Pressure value at the first local node

16-.. 		 Pressure values at the rest of the nodes
