Hello, we have this beam mode that we are trying to analyse. Its a four point bending test. But if we put two plates on top of the beam, at the end of the analysis the two loads are not equal, which theoretically should be equal. So we have put another plate at the top of the two plates and applied the load over that one single plate so that the distribution of the load is equal. We are concerned if this method of load application valid? For clearance, the screen shot of the model is attached.
Thank you to all in anticipation, have a good day
