Franghein is on a distinguished road
Hello everyone,

I'm studying the deformation of a half loaded cylinder with tangential forces on the sides.

I want to put constraints in Y direction and tangential forces on all sides.

I can't find the correct solution for the bases because the command F is in the absolute coordinate system (X-Y-Z) and I used NROTAT to have tangential forces, but in this way also the constraints are rotated in tangential direction.

In the attachments there are example of the problem.

How can I get the right solution?

Thanks for your help.
