Restriction: Available in LS-DYNA and Radioss.


Creates a row of hexa/penta elements. The hexa/penta elements are projected so that they touch the shell elements of the connecting components.

Figure 1.


This realization creates a SPRING element for the body, and projects and connects the element to nodes of the adjoining shell/solid elements with RBE2 elements within the prescribed cylinder diameter, L1 (cylinder height along the vector from the connector location) and L2 (cylinder height in the opposite direction of the vector from the connector location).

The realization uses the prop_radioss_rigidbolts.tcl property script.
