Remote displacement

    • bibas

      Based on previous discussions (e.g. this), I implement a displacement on the edge of the beam


      and then I shorten the beam length(less elements) to apply a remote displacement:


      with details like:



      From this I should expect same results right? But they are not the same (displacement as well):



      Did I do something wrong?

      attached is also the file.

      Hi Beatriz nDelete that remote displacement.nInsert a Fixed Joint and select the one hole in the grey part at the top pin for Reference side, and the two holes in the green part for mobile.nInsert another Fixed Joint for the pin at the bottom.nInsert a Remote Displacement, but pick the bottom face of the grey part.nYou can edit the coordinates of the line of action of the Remote Displacement to put the Y coordinate where you want it along the grey part.n
