Assign BWBN material to ZeroLength element ?

Post by Gholamreza » Sat Oct 31, 2020 6:18 am

Hello Engineers,
I was wondering to know if I can assign BWBN material to ZeroLength element?
In general, How can I make sure if I could assign a specific material to a specific element? For example, I know that Viscous Material can only be assigned to truss and zeroLength elements. and now I wanted to know if I can assign BWBN material to ZeroLength element?

You can assign any uniaxial material to the following:
- truss element
- zero length element
- two node link element
- beam fiber
