Introduction

The core is a structural component used to define the cross-section of a beam in the component builder approach. Typically, portions of the cross-section are filled with a core material whose properties can be defined here. This core is connected to the other structural components of the section via adhesives.

Notes

  1. The geometry of the core is defined by surface SurfaceName.
  2. The physical properties of the core are defined by solid properties SolPropName.
  3. The mesh density used to defined the meshing of the wall is defined directly here.
  4. It is possible to attach comments to the definition of the object; these comments have no effect on its definition.
