Can the MultiField solver handle rotated interface nodes? Forces from the magnetic solution
to the structural solution where rotated nodes exist on the boundary do not look correct.

In ANSYS 9.0 when the nodes of the structural elements at an electrostatic-structural
interface are rotated, the electrostatic forces are applied incorrectly in
the rotated nodal coordinate system. In the attached example the nodes
are rotated 45 degrees from normal and the forces get applied at a 45 degree
angle to the surface when they should be perpendicular. This error has been
corrected in ANSYS 10.0 [Ref: Defect 32088] Note: Do not try to rotate nodes of fields
which have to be morphed. At ANSYS 10.0 morphed fields must have nodal coordinate
systems of global cartesian.
