Delete element before impact

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am simulating an impact of two bars falling to the floor. These bars are initially held together with a RBE2 element while falling down to the floor. I am now trying to delete this connecting RBE2 element right before the bars hit the floor. How do I do this? I am currently experimenting with sensors but I haven't been able to figure it out yet.

 

Thank you

Hi,

I would suggest using an /RBODY instead of an /RBE2 to connect the items.  Then you can disable the /RBODY by specifying a Skew_ID which would reference a /SENSOR/INTER or /SENSOR/RWALL depending on how you are modeling the floor.   RD-E: 1200 Jumping Bicycle shows an example of using /SENSOR/RWALL. 

 

Thanks,

Andy
