StressCheck Tutorial: Usage of the Force/Moment Method for Arbitrary Cross Sections
Abstract: Usage of the Force/Moment method to apply force/moment vectors to an arbitrarily-shaped cross section through a location in 3D space as defined by a local system. The resulting traction distribution will be a statically equivalent linear stress distribution. When checking the applied Force/Moment load record, using the same local system for the check should return the force/moment vectors.
