Assign same command to several elements ANSYS(WB)

Assign same command to several elements ANSYS(WB)


Is it possible to assign the same command code to several geometry parts or elements? For instance, I would like to add the Drucker-Prager code to several elements Or add the Damping and string coefficients for several beam elements(like adding COMBIN14 element)



RE: Assign same command to several elements ANSYS(WB)


Your geometry looks very orderly. Would you be able to select the elements via NSEL location filters, then ESLN,S,1? EMODIF could then be used to get your desired parameters.

Best regards,

I converted my beams into rigid beams in similar tree just inserting commands once.
I only add to the first beam and then RBM on the command in tree, copy and paste below. And again, and again.

Im unable to check it right now but Im sure it looks like i described.
