    How can I set a non uniform load (for example sin(x)) in on a cylinder ring?

    Hello elena,

    you may get the coordinate of the node/element by apdl and define any function for the load also using apdl. Apdl is some kind of batch/script programming implemented within Ansys. You might inspect the detailled documentation/help for more informations. You also can send me a pm for a sample apdl-file.
