Reference point coupling

Hey anna.

I want to add a reference point in the center of the pipeline to add the load(bending moment, shear force, axial force) to this point. Can I do this using CouplingFeatures?Or maybe you have another way?

Thanks for your reply.

Reference point

there is unfortunately no direct way of doing this. You have to use a stiff edge beam on the cylinder and two stiff beams crossing the point coupled to the edge beam. The load can then be applied onto the point.
