Create system on curved surface for springs

Recommended Posts

Hi,  I have several curved surfaces in a Hypermesh shell model (user profile is Nastran).  I want to connect several different components together with spring elements.  I would like to define a local system at each node on a line(s) which could be assigned/used for the spring elements.  Can anyone help with a way to automate this process?  I am using Hypermesh v11.

 

Any help is appreciated!

Rahul,

 

Thank you for the help.  I should have mentioned that I am using v11 Hypermesh.  I do not have the "options" button.  Instead, there is a dropdown menu for No systems, single system, 1 sys per layer, or 2 sys per layer.  When I choose one of the sys choices, I do not see any systems being created.  Maybe I am not understanding the drop-down menu choices?

 

Kind regards,

Diane

Rahul,

 

I found another panel for spot welds that does include an option to "build systems".  I didn't realize that sometimes there are slightly different panels for what seems like the same task.  Thank you - you have made my day!
