Mixed meshing

Question asked by Derek Bishop on Dec 24, 2007

I recently tried to do some mixed meshing without success. To investigate it further I made up a model comprising a base plate welded to a equal angle beam. The end of the beam was bonded to the base plate. The sketch line for the beam finished at the plate srface. Couldn't get it to work.

Perhaps the main query is the way in which the contact between the beam end and the plate are defined. Do I make a contact between the plate and the beam end node or beam end face?

Any suggestions or hints would be appreciated.

Regards,

Derek Bishop
