Restrained Shell Moment

(Bjoern Wismann) #1

I have noticed that the maximum restrained moment changes as the grid count increases. I don’t want too many elements. How do I get an accurate approximation?

I’m not too familiar with FEM. Where are the moment points (S-forces output) placed on the surface?

The cross section forces of shells are calculated at the element centroids.
