Loading inside and outside of shell plates at Ansys 3D model of ship
I am analysing a 3D model of a part of ship including 2 tanks in forward by Ansys Software(Ver11), I fixed all DOF of transverse BHDs located in aft and forward of model, now I should consider loads as external and internal pressure inside and outside of all tank shells, I changed workplane on outside of side and bottom shell plates and then set hydrostatic load as gradient on surfaces, can you let me know am I right ? and what shall I do for internal presure whereas we have too many areas in our model this is very difficult to select one by one each area for applying pressure on surfaces?
With many Thanks
