To rigidly connect components, you need to add links between their respective interfaces.
To create a rigid link between two interfaces, complete the next steps:
You can create a compliant link by adding stiffness to a rigid link.
If you want to have a compliant coupling between two interfaces, you have to add a stiffness model to an existing link.
To create a compliant link between two interfaces, complete the next steps:
You can also add (off-diagonal) synthetic stiffness to a link, by building a stiffness model directly in COUPLE. The stiffness model builder allows you to add stiffness and damping between any pair of interface DoFs (including cross stiffness).
To add synthetic stiffness, complete the next steps:
You can change the stiffness units in the Preferences.
