Equation Property (ICWForce)

Gets or sets the equation describing this force of nonuniform distribution.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property Equation As System.String
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICWForce
Dim value As System.String
instance.Equation = value
value = instance.Equation
System.string Equation {get; set;}
property System.String^ Equation {
   System.String^ get();
   void set ( &   System.String^ value);

Property Value

Nonuniform force distribution equation


For VBA: 
CWForceObj.CoordSystemType = swsCoordinateTypeCylindrical 

CWForceObj.Equation = ".4*""r"" +.8* ""t"" +.6* ""z"""
CWForceObj.CoordSystemType = swsCoordinateType_e.swsCoordinateTypeCylindrical 

CWForceObj.Equation = ".4*""r"" +.8* ""t"" +.6* ""z"""
For CSolidWorks.Interop.cosworks~SolidWorks.Interop.cosworks.ICWForce~Equation.html#:
CWForceObj.CoordSystemType = (int)swsCoordinateType_e.swsCoordinateTypeCylindrical;

CWForceObj.Equation = ".4*\"r\" +.8* \"t\" +.6* \"z\"";



This property is valid only if ICWForce::IncludeNonUniformDistribution is set to 1.

The equation is a string that contains double-quoted coordinate variables. In the example, the cylindrical coordinate system requires that the equation be specified with coordinate variables r, t, and z. Other coordinate systems use different sets of coordinate variables. See the Defining Nonuniform Force Loads topic in the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Help for more information.
