RelConnectsSurfaceEdge

Hinges on 2D member edge

A connection of two slabs (2D members) may be modelled as a fixed one or a hinge may be inserted to create a pinned connection. Three configurations of slab hinge are allowed: rigid, free, flexible. Under any configuration, all translations are fully transferred from one slab to the other. If there is no hinge, the connection is rigid.

yes

Human readable unique name of the support

2D Member

String

Enum

Free

Rigid

Flexible

yes

uz

Enum

Free

Rigid

Flexible

yes

100

yes, if ux = Flexible

The flexibility of the connection in X direction

Stiffness Y [MN/m2]

Double

100

yes, if uy = Flexible

The flexibility of the connection in Y direction

Stiffness Z [MN/m2]

Double

Coordinate definition

Enum

Absolute

Relative

yes

Selects the coordinate system that is used to define the length of the hinge. Relative means without units. To define length of the hinges in meters input absolute

Origin

Enum

From start

From end

yes

Specifies the origin of the coordinate system used for the definition of the length of the hinge

Start point [m]

Double

value in meters for Coordinate definition = Absolute

0,0

value in percentage for Coordinate definition = Relative

0,0

yes

Defines the position of the start point of the hinge in relative or absolute coordinates

Units in meters [m]

End point [m]

Double

value in meters for Coordinate definition = Absolute

5,25

value in percentage for Coordinate definition = Relative

1,0

yes

Defines the position of the end point of the hinge in relative or absolute coordinates

Units in meters [m

Parent ID

String

67b35d84-3d04-47aa-aa4a-dc1263982320

no

Is filled for objects created be dividing curved geometry to series of straight line objects. Parent ID will ensure that curved edge is imported as straight parts to nonsupporting application, and back to original supporting application as curved geometry.

To ensure successful round trip of segmented objects and their related objects, Parent ID needs to be present in both directions.

Id

String

39f238a5-01d0-45cf-a2eb-958170fd4f39

no

Unique attribute designation
