Applied is the default setting for the Type option for Loads.
Type->Applied causes Loads to return the total external load applied to a body.

• The alternatives to the Applied setting are Reaction or Dynamic, which cause Loads to return kinematic reaction forces or inertial loads, respectively.
• See also: SetLoads.

Further Examples

Load the Modeler2D package and define a simple model.

There is one ten-unit force applied to the link body. Here is the total resulting load applied to the X3, Y3, and CapitalTheta3 coordinates.

Alternatively, we can look at the reaction forces applied by the constraints or the dynamic loads.

If we evaluate all three load types at a particular solution point, we can see that a force balance is achieved.
