With the nodal load boundary condition type a vectorial force is applied on all nodes of a geometrical entity (node, edge or surface). Please take into consideration that in case of nodal forces on an edge or a surface, the total force is applied equally on every node of the mesh lying on the chosen entity with its full magnitude.
Do not use a nodal load in order to apply distributed loads on surfaces or edges, as this may cause incorrect loading patterns for meshes with different element sizes and at the boundaries of the assigned entities.
