force_element_edge_normal index force

Distributed normal force in the direction of the outward normal at the edge of a geometry. This distributed term is translated into equivalent nodal force terms on the edges of elements. This option is meant for 2D and 3D calculations. Also the record force_element_edge_normal_geometry should be specified, and optionally the record force_element_edge_normal_time can be specified.
