Perpendicular midsurface connections


New member
How do I connect two perpendicular midsurface shell elements (stiffened plate) together? I dont have a surface to sellect on the stiffeners because they are drawn as one part, connected with the plate. I am trying to compare the differences between using a shell element and a beam element.

If you have ptc maintenance, it is easier to seach the knowledge base than for me to explain it. There will be examples on all types of mechanica problems. If you can't find it, reply and I will try to help you out.
