Does the MPC184 as a revolute joint contain mass?

    • Amirmkr


      When you connect two beam188 using an mpc184 as a revolute joint, is the joint massless or it has lumped mass? If it has mass how to determine it? if it is massless how to add a mass at the joint?

      The revolute joint has no mass. If you want to attach a mass then please use point mass.
