Beam End Releases

Recommended Posts

I am trying to perform a 1D beam element analysis on a formula student race car. I need help regarding the application of beam end releases at the suspension nodes.

Can someone confirm this setup - 

Node 1 ie. pin a = 456, node 2 ie pin b =0 -  for simulating the a arm with a ball joint is correct or not?

With this, I am unable to get the rocker(bell crank to rotate).

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

How the load is coming to the element and what type of load is it?

 

Is it possible to share the model file?

I have sent the file to you using the secure file transfer link.

Hi Amogh,

 

I think Pin flags are taken care in analysis. See this comparision between with and without pin flags. WIthout pin flags, the elements behave like fixed joints and overall they are stiffer.
