I can't use beam tools in the Mechanical (Ansys Workbench 19.0, Student Version).

I have started the collegue this year and I have a presentation about structural analysis. I'm trying to get the Shear Force and the Moment, but the Beam Tool are disabled.

Can you help me?

Hi Luiz,

The beam tool that you are trying to access is only applicable for line bodies. It seems that you are using a solid body to model the beam. In that case, it will not be applicable.

Does this mean that if we are using solid body to model a beam we can;t have the BMD and SFD?? or is there any other way to obtain BMD AND SFD?? I am trying to model an I-section girder.
