force_element_edge_geometry index node_0 node_1 node_2 ...

Selects the area for which the force_element_edge record with the same index should be applied. In stead of specifying node numbers also, by example, -geometry_line 1 can be used in 2D, indicating that the nodes on line 1 get the distributed force.

Attention: if this force_element_edge_geometry option is used INSIDE a FE mesh, then the elements on each side of the geometry will get the force. So you may need to specify only half of the physical force value.
