Connecting structures with a beam element in AQWA

    • Kasper96


      I am doing a multi-rigid-body analysis in ANSYS AQWA. I want to connect the bodies using beam elements. I want to do this by using a connection stiffness matrix in AQWA between two structures. AQWA asks for a 6-by-6 matrix, but my stiffness matrix for a beam element is a 12-by-12 matrix. Does somebody know how to implement a connection with a beam element in AQWA?
