Topic: Copy Entities between different models
Hello Atena Team and members,
I have got 2 questions
Im supposed to to some investigations in punching shear behaviour of footings. I have 16 different models. Now I need to put in a bunch of monitoring points into the models which costs a lot of time. Due to the relatively similar geometry of the models I want to copy the entities Im examining from one model to another. This are point and line entities which i want to copy. The best case would be if i could copy whole layers and the Interval Data within the monitoing rpoints from one to another model but i think thats not possible.
I want to simulate experiments we did further. We put several small "pipes", that mesured the strain along their axis, into the concrete. What method is most suitable to rebuild this situation.
I thought about this 2 different ways.
Modelling just Line entities: but what would be the best monitoring point type for that because there are some pipes with their axis not into one of the principal directions
Modelling line entities and assign a material to them weaker than the concrete to not make the concrete stiffer
Im modelling with GiD
thank u in advance!
