Point to apply gravity or acceleration

Recommended Posts

Hi , I would like to understand why INSPIRE asks me a point to apply gravity ou acceleration in translation ? To my mind , the gravity or any acceleration in translation is applied ti the whole body  , not especially in one point. I'm wrong ? 

what is the consequence to apply gravity on a random point ?

Hi VirgileV,

 

It's like described in the user guide (help).

"g-Loads are applied to the entire model rather than a part, and are specific to a load case. If you delete the part where the g-Load is applied, it remains in the model."

 

I have tested it on a small example, I have deleted the part, where the G-Load was attached and the load still remains in the model.

It is a little bit confusing, since it does not matter where you put the load. It seems it is for graphic positioning only.

 

Best Regards,

Mario

Hi,

 

I have used the acceleration panel to create the load, so it is not the global gravity load.
