Using 1D elements to connect rigid and elastic components

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I have one rigid component and one elastic component (both are 2D).  How can I connect these two components using 1D rigid elements?  I am using Hypermesh with LS-Dyna interface.  

 

Thank you,

Sriram

Hi,

two (or more) rigid components cannot share nodes (because the nodes are dependant)

So you cannot connect directly rigid bodies (rigid elements are "nodal" rigid bodies)
