I am doing a hydrostatic analysis and created my equation as a function of height but I wasn't sure what value to put in the Value box. Is this (1) or is it my max?
Thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
Technically, you can do it any way you want. Creo does the math: local_value = value * function(x,y,z)
Personally I think it is best to make your function a "unit function", and put the max value in the Value box.
That makes it much easier to see if your model is using the desired values.

If you are not sure, you can verify the load resultant using "Review total load" in the "Loads" drop-down menu. Pressure * projected area = resulting force.
That's what I was looking for.....thanks. I wish Creo had a default graphical pressure gradient like in Ansys for hydrostatic pressure
I think it does, if you click "preview" in your pressure load definition form. You might have to look into your simulation display settings...
And after having exited the load definition dialog:
I guess I like the colored gradient with PSI legend
