Window Pressure

Aircraft windows are normally modeled with CROD elements around the hole of the shells. Constant pressure on the window area is applied by means of force distribution on the edge nodes.

  1. From the menu bar, click Aerospace > Loads/BCs > Window Pressure.
  2. Select the 1D elements around the window opening.
  3. Enter a constant pressure value.
    Equivalent forces on the 1D element nodes are calculated and added to a new load collector with the given name.
