Beam End Shortening in HyperMesh

Recommended Posts

Hello Altair community,

 

I am working on performing a modal analysis in HyperMesh and am having trouble figuring out how to shorten the ends of the horizontal beams so they do not interfere with the column at this joint:

I was able to find this short illustration in a PDF document provided by Altair:

However, I cannot find an explanation for how to do this elsewhere in the PDF. If anyone knows how to accomplish this, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help!

this is only "visual", and there's nothing wrong with this.

The most important thing is to guarantee that your beam elemets are correctly connected. Using a 1D model is that what you get always.

If you are really interested in detailed stresses and joint stiffness, you should be using a 2D or 3D model for this, depending on your section type.
