Hi tibor,

 

You should elaborate on why you are asking the question. Without some more details about the problem, the model, the arrangement, what you are tryingto calculate, what you have already calculated, and so on, the answer to your question is "Setup > Loads > Moments".

I guess you could try to combine Cylindrical Local Coorinate Systems with your Moment Loads to apply it in the tangential axis, or whatever load directions that you intend.
