# How can I apply a torque to a wheel in Abaqus/CAE 6.7?

Hello,

I'm a final year student and I'm doing a project involving a composite
wheel. I need to do a torque test to the  wheel but can find the way
how to do it. Could any one explaine how could I do it?

Best Regards

### The torsion applied in ANSYS

Dear,

I use the ANSYS present. Therefore, I just give the APDL command to show you how to apply the torson in the ANSYS.
