Distributed Mass PropertyManager solidworks simulation

Distributes a specified mass value on the selected faces for use with static, frequency, buckling, and linear dynamic studies. Use this functionality to simulate the effect of components that are suppressed or not included in the modeling when their mass can be assumed to be uniformly distributed on the specified faces. The distributed mass is assumed to lie directly on the selected faces, so rotational effects are not considered. Use remote mass if the mass cannot be assumed to be uniformly distributed.

For static studies, you should define either gravity or centrifugal loads in order for the distributed mass to be effective. The program internally calculates the static load based on the acceleration due to gravity defined in the Gravity PropertyManager or angular velocity and angular acceleration parameters defined in the Centrifugal PropertyManager.
