Topic: 18.104.22.168 Mesh definition for lines (CFRP reinforcement)
I have been trying to mesh my reinforcements (CFRP lines). Because every time I tend to analyze the model I will receive the error shown in pic 1. I think it's because my lines are not included in the mesh as shown in pic2 and 3. I have followed the steps in section 22.214.171.124 and I couldn't find the option line in (element type - linear - line) there was only surface and volume, as shown in pic 4.
Moreover, I tried to assign an Identification node reinfocements, but GID will select the whole line instead of a node only. which is probably due to the mesh.
A genuine question, In transport analysis, how do I exactly connect my reinforcements to the concrete, is it through the Identification element reinforcements?, and how do I define CFRP material?, because there is only steel and concrete.
