Truning a supportelement from compressive to traction


i got a 2D-FE-plate modell and i want to have a traction support instead of a compressive force support. But if i try to turn it with the comand “SOF_SE_ORIENTATE” it wont change anything.

kind regards

Needs to be upside down

Hi Thomask,

compression only/tension only supports only work if you use nonlinear spring elements instead of fixed supports.

Best regards,
