I am doing a simulation of C-section beam. when we go for simulation we have beam element. but in my structure there are some gussets are placed in between the c-section for additional strength. hence when i go for the analysis or meshing.the gussets are not properly connected. as they are treated as solid mesh.
so what should i do to solve the simulation?
i have thinking about taking the wholemodel in solid but it's giving some different result comparision to beam mesh and it's also not possible to go for larger structure.
please suggest a method, how can i go for a analysis of C-beam containing gussets?
