I need to model a T shape wall, but it changes geometry with the heigh (the web grows). I need that the position of the flanges in the interface between two sections be the same, ie, it is necessary to have not coincident centroids.
How is it possible?

One way of doing it can be to use block3D command and brick elements to generate a mesh of 3D finite elements separately for flange and for web. Then assign MP constraints to the common nodes for the flange and the web.
