Anchor nodelink

Please confirm or otherwise that anchor nodelinks don't transfer moments to the connected  node? Only forces are transferred.

Anchors with connected node seems to have no rotational stiffness?  Displaced shape  shows rotational stiffness but no moments are reported at the anchor.

If this correct can the help file please be updated.

  • Greetings, 

    You could have run a simple test to confirm,

    Model simple system:

    Segment A:

    • Set pipe property density to 0.00
    • Rigid anchor
    • Pipe run

    Segment B

    • Pipe Run 
    • Insert Concentrated force with a Moment and force on A axis.

    Connect Segment A to B using a Connected anchor. 

    Analyze the model and review results grids

    Conclusion:

    As indicated by the results above, the Axial force and Moment inserted on the end of segment B are transferred through the Connected Anchor to the rigid anchor at A00.
