RBE3 Elements with different weight factors

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am working on a model in hypermesh where the loads are applied at a single dependent node and transferred to multiple independent nodes. I would like the RBE3 weighting factor to change between groups of nodes. Can I assign different weighting factors to different independent nodes in a single RBE3 element? If not, how can I apply my loads?

 

I have tried using multiple RBE3 elements (one for each weighting factor) except I get the following error (Node 189285 is the node where the loads are applied)

 

*** ERROR # 173 ***
A dependent d.o.f. defined more than once in rigid element entry.
GRID ID =   189285
component =        1

 

Thanks,

Malcolm
