Force as result?

maybe a simple question; I as a Ansys beginner was curios about: Under solution in a static - structural modell, I can get e.g deformations or various types of stresses. In other words: I can tell Ansys the forces, supports, displacements,... of my problem and Ansys calculates e.g.  the deformation for me. My question is: Could it also work the other way around? E.g. I tell Ansys, that for a beam I want to get a certain deformation of my beam at position xy and I ask Ansys "What load has to be applied on a certain edge or surface to get such a deformation at this specific point?"


Or, as an alternative: When I have two bodies in contact and I give a displacement on a surface on one of the bodies, there will be a deformation and an equilibrium state in static structural, where the sum of forces is 0. Can I extract somewhere the force, that body A exerts on body B?

One can look ta reactions at supports or at contacts say between bodies. The force reaction probe is the tool

Yes cant be the reverse of stating a deformation, which Load will be necessary, is the same but, you can only do applying Loads.

And respect 2nd question, I think yes, but I dont know how work  with 2 bodies.
