What type of connection to consider between concrete column and footing joint?
I am modelling a concrete column with footing which looks like this -
I wanted to ask if i should consider both as bodies as single unit or 2 seperate entities? The main problem with using 1 single body is with meshing, as the simulation will only run at a particular mesh size like 50mm and will not run otherwise
If i consider 2 seperate bodies, i can mesh them independantly and provide seperate mesh sizes, However I am not sure how to set up the joint between them, I have tried using bonded but it does not converge like the single model, and looking for more help from you guys.
