Setting up a constant stiffness condition(CNS) at the boundary

Asked by Akm on 2019-08-21

I am trying to set up a constant normal stiffness(CNS) condition for the direct shear test. Is there any engine specifically suited for that purpose? If not, how can I achieve this?

There is KinemCNSEngine [*] that does that for a simple (not direct) shear box. You may take some inspiration from the code [**] if you wish to adapt it to another kind of geometry.
I'm kind of ashamed all comments therein are in French, though...

[**] that is calling

Thanks, Jerome. I think that should help me out. I will try to adopt it for my geometry. Please allow me to get back to you if I have any further questions.
