Rigid connections

Question:

I fixed nodes 10 & 12. Despite that, there is a movement of the nodes in the results. Did I do something wrong? Please advise.

 
Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for sending your question.
The node no 10&12 is fixed using boundary condition, but the roof floor which is located on node no 10&12 is considered with floor diaphragm. For this reason, rigid link on roof floor is duplicated with the boundary condition, and the boundary conditions on node no.10&12 are automatically released . Change the Floor Diaphragm from Consider to Do not consider.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Many thanks Jihong,

Floor diaphragm activated means all connections on the floor level is rigid, right? I ask because I am thinking what I will do if I fixed a node on the same floor which is also a diaphragm floor.

Hello,

In that case, using Point Spring Supports via Boundary Condition > Point Spring, nodes can be fixed on the same floor which is also consider a diaphragm. Delete the fixed boundary condition on nodes 10&12, and assign the point spring boundary with Fixed option.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Jihong Hwang
