Sprill Kill/Alive with Preload

Hi

I am trying to do interference solving for a model in the first load step and I wanted to apply spring preload in the second,

I found few commands for Ekill/Ealive for spring element, but it is not working when I am applying preload to the spring.

Does anybody know any alternative to this?

    See this video for more information on how to do that - preload can be added as usual in the spring (under connection tree)

    Hi ekostson,

    Thanks for the help, As I already mentioned,  I tried with preload and it is not working

    Without applying preload, the above commands work fine

    Thanks

    If you are using a spring (body-body or to ground) as defined under connections and then suing the preload under the details of the spring and then do as shown in the video, then that works. I would suggest, that you make a small test example say with one cube and one body to ground spring that is not active in 1st step and then active in second, and that has the preload.
