Lukas Sühnel General RFEM RSTAB

Is it possible to reconnect split lines or bars?


This depends on the starting position. Currently, lines and bars can only be reconnected or merged if no other elements are connected to the split node. This is clarified in the attached picture.

In order to unite the multiply divided rod, the intermediate nodes are to be selected. Afterwards the function "delete node -> Merge Connected Lines / Members "will be called.
In the lower system, this function is not offered, since merging would delete the definition node of the connected carrier.
