ST7- Applying Moments to a Brick Mesh
3D solid elements (otherwise referred to as brick elements) do not contain rotational degrees of freedom in the element formulations. Each node in a brick element has only three translational degrees of freedom, meaning that the displacements DX, DY and DZ are calculated, while the rotations RX, RY and RZ (and corresponding moments) are not considered. If one were to apply a point moment directly to a brick mesh, it would be ignored as reflected in the solver log file Warning 6.
