The transform constraint has been extended to allow for applied forces to be transformed into in a new coordinate system.

Essentially in this a example, a force is applied to the external surface of a pipe and then the coordinate system of the external surface is transformed into a cylindrical coordinate system. The direction of the applied force is in the global Y direction (this corresponds to the Tangential direction after the coordinate transformation).
Depicted below is pipe showing no displacement:
