Elastic Supports

 

Elastic supports are defined by their stiffness properties and can be described in two coordinate systems:

 

 

Creating elastic supports

The following elastic supports can be created:

 

Elastic point supports Elastic point supports

Elastic linear supports Elastic linear supports

Elastic planar supports Elastic planar supports

 

 

Configuring elastic supports stiffness and damping

The stiffness associated with degrees of freedom and the seismic damping are defined using the elastic supports properties window.

By using these elastic supports, you can accurately simulate the flexibility of supports in your structural model, ensuring a more realistic and precise analysis.
