With the pressure boundary condition type a distributed load is applied on a face or face set. As the pressure value is defined dependent on a unit surface area (force per square length unit) the total load applied on the part depends on the total surface area of the faces. The load is directed normal to the assigned elements’ surfaces in the initial (undeformed) configuration. Opposed to the follower pressure boundary condition the pressure direction does not change as the geometry deforms.
