Hello, I'm trying to set up a simple rocker model using 1D elements for the actual bell crank in Hypermesh and then applying the force at one end of the rocker and then attaching a spring CELAS to the other side, my issue is that for some reason the whole model is blowing up under the loadstep, I'm not sure how to use the DOF for the spring modeled in blue, but I tried to use the correct pin flags on the 1Ds for the rocker so it's constrained to in-plane. I attahed the .hm file as well, any help is appreciated, thanks. 1d rocker.hm
Hi guys, I would like to simulate a rocker including adjecent parts Therefore I meshed the body with 3D Tetra mesh and added the rods by using CROD Elements and place them on the RBE2 Node of the holes. Constaints in Translation (X,Y,Z) are at the end of the Rods and additionally at the lower left hole of the rocker. The force is placed on the upper left hole. In the results I have great displacement (no matter how I change the e-modulus of the rods) and additionally I don't understand the reason why the displacement in Y differs along the thickness. Seems to bei something wrong in Rod connection? Does anybody have an idea how to interpret the results and how to fix the model. Thanks a lot. Bye, Jan
