Abaqus Fasteners.

Abaqus Fasteners.


I am building an Abaqus model with a beam and a sheathing on top as shown in the figure.

The sheathing is connected to the beam using fasteners. Both are shell elements. When connecting, I am getting the following error.

"Unable to locate correct number of spot weld connection points at reference node 9 (assembly) for interaction fasteners-1. Please check the *fastener definition option."

Will any of you know about it?

Thank you in advance.

RE: Abaqus Fasteners.

Can you share the .cae file or at least show the definition of such a fastener ? Something must be wrong with it.
