    how can I fix only a half of a cilindrical face whe simulating routed pipes?

    Oscar Martinez


      Hi guys, I´m trying to simulate a piping configuration which is presenting failures in some of their components. The actual pipe is restricted with supports that allow either no movement in any direction or only movement in the axis direction. The thing ist that these supports only make contact with the lower half of the pipes (as highlighted in orange in the attached image). When I split the piping route in order to define the fixation length and them apply the fixation to this I actually fix the whole pipe section and not only the lower half of it. Can anyone help me with this? Is there any tool to actually apply a resctriction to only a half of a piping component?

       

      Thanks guys for your help!
