Creates an elastic link between two existing structural lines.
Modify Line Elastic Link
Modifies elastic links between two lines.
Spring elements describe an elastic connection between two structural elements.
Spring elements between structural lines can be given an explicit value, by defining a material with bedding properties or by defining a spring work law.
A bedding can be defined to fail in tension in a non-linear calculation (specify Yield Stress = 0 in the material bedding properties).
These effects can be considered only when using a non-linear calculation.
The group number 0 is interpreted as automatic. If you want to change from a defined group number back to the value automatic, the group number 0 must be entered.
A detailed description of these properties can be found in the chapter ‘SLNS – Supports and kinematic couplings on a SLN’ of the manual SOFiMSHC.
