Topic: Delete reinforcement on construction process
I have a model with shear anchors between concrete and a FRP sheet. I would like to eliminate one anchor along the analysis.
I tried with some construction process conditions:
- I used condition "Element activity for line" to delete the anchor, but it didn't seem to have any effect
- I used condition "Reinforcement inactivity in line" changin the material for the anchor to another with a reduced modulus of elasticity, but it also seem to have no effect.
- I used condition "Reinforcement inactivity in line" making the anchor inactive, but it gave me an error message
- I used the "Show Material Activity" at the interval section, but it told me to only use this technique for macroelements and not for line elements.
What could be a better approach to eliminate an specific reinforcement line along the analysis? Could you please tell me the steps I need to follow to eliminate on specific line element in the middle of the analysis?
I send you my model to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks a lot
