# Mesh with nodes that do not coincide

Member

How can I solve this problem ? The nodes do not coincide and are displaced from one another

where did you create this mesh?

is it workbench meshing?

are these bodies in different parts in SpaceClaim (or design modeler)?

Please create multibody part and use share topology.

please see help manual for more details.

I created this geometry using the MPDL, here is the code:

! MATERIAL CONCRETO

fc = 33.50 ! 33.50 N/mm2 +- 2.5

Ec = 28640 ! 28640 N/mm2

nu_c = 0.19

! Define microplane model properties

k0 =

k1 =

k2 =

gamma = 10e-3

alpha = 0.96

beta = 400

c = 4

! MATERIAL ACO

fy = 500 ! 33.50 N/mm2 +- 2.5

Es = 210000 ! 210000 N/mm2

nu_s = 0.3

DAP = 12.7

AP = PI*DAP**2/4
