Beam related boundary condition issue
Body A = Flexible (solid 3d) (fixed support)
Body B = Flexible (solid 3d)
Joint = Universal Type
Body C = rigid (solid 3d)
(Body C is a vehicle. i want to treat it as rigid body and want to use its boundary condition.
I has wheels about it can translate axially when loads are applied and rotate likewise.)
Between Body B and Body C i want bonded contact. The wheel is shown just for demonstrative purposes. i am not simulating wheel.
Things done by me and Issues encountered
1.) Approach one
I modeled and imported, then i gave BODY C as rigid body.
Because of that the connection between BODY B and BODY C is void.
so unable to proceed from here.
2.) Approach Two
I took the imported model in space-claim and extracted BODY C as BEAM.
Then also i was not able to give boundary conditions.
3.) Approach Three
I removed Body C and put beam from connections options. there also i was not able to give boundary conditions on the beam.
P.S:- I am beginner in Ansys static structural analysis. I have been through lots of videos but was not able to get the solution. If somebody can point me to tutorials pertaining to the relevant issues, i would be grateful.
