How do I implement combin40 for springs in WB?
I've been trying to change the spring element used by workbench. WB uses the element combin39 by default and I'd like to change that to combin40. All I know is, that I can do that by inserting a command right below the definition of the spring. But what does this command look like?
This is, what I tried so far:
! Commands inserted into this file will be executed just after the spring definition.
! The material, type, and real number for this spring is equal to the parameter "_sid".
! Active UNIT system in Workbench when this object was created: Metric (mm, kg, N, s, mV, mA)
! NOTE: Any data that requires units (such as mass) is assumed to be in the consistent solver unit system.
! See Solving Units in the help system for more information.
Ansys then uses the element combin40, but the solver output says, that the nodes I and J of that element are not coincident. I tried scoping the spring to a face, to an edge and even to a single node, but the warning message didn't change. Do you have an idea what the problem might be?
