Surface load: load in a particular area of a surface


New member
Hi, This is regarding Analysis workbench.
Though I have experience in other workbenches, i am new to this WB.

I can't give a business example. So I'm giving my problem through small example.
There is a cantilever bar. And, there is a hole in the opposite side of the bar.
I want to give the load only on the circle area.

I read most samples & tutorials.
But, whenever i select the surface to provide load, it used to select the whole surface. not the particular area. (The circle)

How can i do it?
