Thx for reading my post. Please see attached model. I would like to support the bottom surface og the footplate so that i can not move down in the -z direction but can only deflect upwards in the +z. This would mean that the footplate is only RESTRAINED for downwards deflection. This corresponds to the plate laying on a concrete block. How can add this kind of support?
Hope anyone can help
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am also having trouble with this, I am simply trying to model a post with a base bolted to ground and a load on the post, I wish to see the load on the bolt, but keep getting errors with the calculations, as the reaction at the bolt seems to change between tension and compression when in reality would always be in tension (i.e. trying to be pulled out of ground)
I have 2 loads that are equal but in opposite directions.
please help me.
Just create 2 copies of the same thing and add supports to suit. See attached.
Your method seems a strange way to model this structure though......just my opinion of course.
Thanks heaps, seems so obvious now.
I am very new to Robot and am learning by myself, i am very interested to hear another way to model this if you don't mind showing me. (although i fear it may be above what i know)
Also i have updated the model with correct dimensions and steel plate as base. (couldn't find steel plate before) FB???
I'd like to do this to do this with a wall that is attached to another wall/column. I've been trying to make this work lineair release, but without succes. Could it be done? ... or may I not be understanding this fully
It is not really a problem, but was curious if that functin also applies to walls to walls (lineair release) to make a wall only bear pressure forces and then be ignored if its being pulled on.
