ANSYS Mechanical is great at applying tabular loads that vary with an independent variable. Say time or Z. What if you want a tabular load that varies in multiple directions and time. You can use the External Data tool to do just that. You can also create a table with a single variable and modify it in the Command Editor.
In the Presentation below, I show how to do all of this in a step-by-step description.PADT-ANSYS-Tabular-Loading-ANSYS-18
