Defining Rigid Link

Post  Sahin on Mon Jan 17, 2011 2:31 am

I am a beginner in ruaumoko and I could not find how to define rigid link elements in ruaumoko. How can I define a rigid link separately in ruaumoko 2D (except defining them as rigid end blocks in elastic section properties)

P.S: I can also define them by increasing their modulus of elasticity. However, I was thinking maybe there is a predefined rigid link option. I found out there is no such existing element. Anyway, I am going with modifying E.

Regards

This is done by slaving the nodes or else as part of the 4 node definition with rigid links inside the element
