Bending-beam as a square tube with webs as a shell-element and straps as solid-elements

      Hello, how can I construct a bending-beam as a square-tube (l x b x h = 2000 x 50 x120).


      The straps (thickness = 9mm) are to be displayed as solid-elements and connected to the two webs (thickness = 2mm, height = 120mm) laterally. The webs (height = 120mm) should be connected to the lateral surface of the solid-elements as shell elements (common surface)


      How can I realize that in Ansys? Pleas help me


      (see sketch)

      Do you know any CAD system?  If so, draw the solid straps and draw a surface for the webs at the midplane of each strap creating a 1 mm gap to the solid.


      If you don't know any CAD system, then in Workbench, add a Static Structural analysis system, and double click on Geometry to open SpaceClaim where you can draw what I describe above.  There are SpaceClaim tutorials on this site in the list on the right.

      Does it also work in DesignModeler because I never tried it in SpaceClaim?

      Yes, you can do the same in DesignModeler.

      So I made a sketch of the two solid straps but what do you mean with "draw a surface for the webs at the midplane of each strap creating a 1 mm gap to the solid


      This is what I made first. Do I have to extrude next, or do I just draw a line through the middle of the straps to get a surface for the webs?


      Sorry I don't get it, I don't know all that well about CAD

      Yes, you have to extrude the sketch to make a solid.  You can extrude a line to make a surface.
