Add Node to Center of Two Beams

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

There are many bolts in assemebly and they are connected by 2 beam elements (there are two elements between one bolt). I want to add one node to that center of it using Tcl if there is no other element is attached to it.

 

How can i do that?

 

Regards,

Sanket

You can use the following algorithm:

 

Find all the beam elements using config number,

In that list find elements having attached element of same config

find the common node between the two beams.
