How to RBE2?

How to RBE2?

How to RBE2?

HI all,

I'm trying to create RBE2 element in Femap version 10.0.1. When I choose RIGID, an RBE3 comes up. When I click on FORMULATION and then drop down menu FEMAP STRUCTURAL OPTIONS, I'm given the following options: 0. RBE3 1. Moment 2. No moment.

I was expecting to be able to change it to RBE2 in this drop down menu :(

Does somebody knows what's going on here?

Much appreciated, thank you,


RE: How to RBE2?

With current version of FEMAP V11.3 to define a rigid element not need to define any property, simply use MODEL > ELEMENT > TYPE = RIGID and then choose the RBE2. To learn more about rigid RBE2 & RBE3 elements please visit my blog in the following address:
