I am really new in OpenSees and wanted to ask about how to assigning equalDOF for zerolength element making connection between beams and solid element (representing deck) in OpenSees Navigator.
My model is in 3D and I am studying the diaphragm effect of a heavy wood floor using screws and glulam deck and beams.
I am getting thi message :
“WARNING ZeroLength::setDomain(): nodes … and …have differing dof at ends for ZeroLength …”
According to FMK in the following link, I have to duplicate nodes and assigning equalDOF. How to do it in Navigator please ?
I tried different kind of manipulations (like assigning 2 or 3 DOFS for all elements as solid element are working in 2D) but without any success.
I will be really grateful for your help !
