# Help - plate model

Help - plate model was created by andressa
Dear all,

I am working with the Reissner-minlin plate model, the trial source term f is given by the two-dimensional Dirac delta
function. However, the program returns an error using CoefficientFunction:

f = LinearForm(source *du* dx).Assemble()
netgen.libngpy._meshing.NgException: Linearform must not have TrialFunction

Code:

Hi Andressa,

in sorX and sorY you use beta, which is a TrialFunction.
In Linearforms, however, only TestFunctions are allowed, therefore the error message.
If you use a CoefficientFunction not including some Trialfunctions this error should be gone.

The final expression in the LinearForm has to be a scalar. Currently source is a vector and du a scalar which will give you an error. If you make source scalar valued your file should work.

Best,
Michael
