Dear Altair support team, Recently, I have carried out a bending simulation on the sturctural members jointed using a spring element as a weld as shown in the first Figure. The simulation works very well, I can obtain the data that I measure like force and moment, except for the angle of rotation around x axis. Previously, I have been trying to use Spring and Rigid elements to track the angle of rotation since the HyperWorks Help indicates that we can obtain the angle of rotation using those element tyupes (Help is captured and shown in the second Figure). But they didnt provide me a resonable result as expected. If I need to track the angle of rotation θ showed in the first Figure, what is the approach that I can use in this situation? If you need futher information please let me know. Best regards Wisawanart
