Hi,

I did, but alas the video does not really elaborate on the question. In order to be able to solve the system of equations, the remote point must be linked to the scoped nodes in the global stiffness matrix through some mathematical relation, the nature of which i would like to understand (if the remote force point was just a dependent point whose displacement is computed as the mean (or some other measure) of the displacements of the scoped nodes, its displacement could simply be calculated ex post and the application of forces to the remote point would make no sense).
