Hi, I would like to know, how to get the script to get the elements in contact (spotweld/tied) in dyna by giving only a node as input. The command file does not give clear steps except for *findmark elements 1 1 1 etc.. or findfaces for getting the solid weld element faces. I tried it manually but beyond getting the solid elements, I'm not getting the 2D elements which are defined in contact spotweld. What must I do to get them too ??.
Hello, I encountered the following problem: after creating a 2D surface mesh on all surfaces of a solid I used tetramesh. Afterwards I reorganized the meshes so that the tetramesh belonged to the component of the original geometry and the 2D mesh was deleted. When trying to apply a line load onto the new tetramesh the following error occured: Lines are not attached to edge elements. I also tried to select the nodes by geometry and selected the desired line but my selection of nodes was not accepted. On the previous 2D mesh the line load worked fine. Do I have to actively attach the new tetramesh to the geometry or do so while creating the tetramesh? Or am I doing anything wrong when creating the tetramesh, so that the lines for line load wouldn't be accepted? Thanks in advance
Hi, Is there a query command to identify elements attached to nodes in Hyperview? I can identify nodes attached to elements by using element.connectivity. There isn't such query available for nodes. Thanks, Roshan
