Connector elements

 Connector elements: are available for two-dimensional, axisymmetric, and three-dimensional analyses; can define a connection between two nodes (each node can be connected to a rigid part, a deformable part, or not connected to any part); can define a connection between a node and ground; have relative displacements and rotations that are local to the element, which are referred to as components of relative motion; are functionally defined by specifying the connector attributes; have comprehensive kinematic and kinetic output; and can be used to monitor kinematics in local coordinate systems. The following topics are discussed:
