I would like to use the PDE toolbox and structural transient model. Is it possible apply moving load (constant force with a speed) when using the PDE ToolBox? Thank you.

Yes, you can do so using a functional form of load. Say you are applying pressure on a face; you can define a function of pressure that activates at certain spatial location at a certain time. You need very fine mesh to control the moving load accurately.

Hi Ravi,
Thank you so much for your reply. Can you give me a example about how to writre the function to handle a moving load along a straight line on a surface of a structure? Thanks.
