How to define the stiffness (K) of celas2 element

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,


i guess it is easy to solve but i can't define the stiffness of a celas2-element. I created 1D --> springs --> celas2, Chose 2 nodes, Chose dof (3), Chose property, but still i don't know how to apply the stiffness (K).

It tried with PARAM --> ELASSTIF, but it doesn't work.

Thank you in advance

CELAS2 is the Scalar Spring Property and Connection that defines a scalar spring element of the structural model without reference to a property entry.


You just have to card edit the element and enter the stiffness value in field 3 called K
