Connector Connector Browser

Standard action buttons in the connector browser behave exacly like the action buttons in the model browser unless one of the view option toggle buttons is pressed down. Their style changes then. The view option toggle buttons define exactly what should be shown, hidden or isolated during using the standard action buttons. The advanced action buttons become active after the appropriate selection. Options are:

1D Quad transition realizations


Every 1D realization can be done together with the quad transition option. It is accessable in all userprofiles in the connectors spotweld panel. Once this option is set the 1D element will be created exactly as connection between the projection points on the approppriate linked shell components. Around these projection points are 4 perfect quads created. Further element rows need to be remeshed as well to realize a proper mesh transition. The size of the quad elements depends on the average mesh size in the region of the projection point or the user can give a specific quad element size in the panel.

Spotweld nugget with shell coating


acm (shell gap + coating)
is accessable in the Nastran, OptiStruct and Abaqus userprofile in the connectors spotweld panel. The definition in the feconfig.cfg can easily be duplicated to make this kind of realization available for other user profiles as well. CFG nastran 72 acm (shell gap + coating) *filter spot *style acm 4 *body 0 hex8 1 1 This realization creates one hexa cluster per connectors and realizes a node to node connection to the linked shell meshes (shell coating). Different patterns are available. This is driven by the number of hexas. The appearance can be influenced via the diameter and the washer layer activation.

pie (rigid spider)
is accessable in the Nastran and OptiStruct userprofile in the connectors spotweld panel. The definition in the feconfig.cfg can easily be duplicated to make this kind of realization available for other user profiles as well. CFG nastran 73 pie (rigid spider) *filter spot *head rigidlink 1 4 *body 0 rigid 1 1 This realization creates one circle mesh out of a certain number of segments per link (shell mesh). Each circle mesh gets stiffen by a rigid spider which middle nodes are joined by a further straight rigid element. The appearance can be influenced via the diameter, the number of segment elements and the washer layer activation.

seam-quad (angled+capped+L)
is accessable in the Nastran userprofile in the connectors seamweld panel.

CFG nastran 101 seam-quad (angled+capped+L) *filter seam *style quad 4 *head *body 0 quad4 1 1

This realization type is intended to be used together with the quad transition option. The pictures on the next page describe the parameters, which influence the appearance.

Boltpanel updates

Partition of seam connectors into passed and failed pieces


In the seam connector panel a partition subpanel has been added. This functionality proves, if each test points has valid projections in the given tolerance. The connectors are sheared into failed and passed pieces and organized as predefined.
