Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for sending your question.
It is impossible to directly apply the moment on the plate element. However, Using element beam loads, you can apply the moment load on the plate. Create the dummy beam on the edge of the plate element, and then apply the moment on the dummy beam.

Thank you.

Best regards,
