    Axial / transverse joint or spring

    The degrees of freedom are based on the following definition of the axis system: The axis x points in the direction of the line;
    the axis y represents the tangent to the surface plane, the axis z the normal to the surface.

    The text boxes and table columns control the degrees of freedom for axial and shear forces. Is a
    Checkbox, this means that the shift in this direction is possible and
    thus the power is not transferred. It can also be entered the constant of a Wegfeder

    Torque joint or spring

    The degrees of freedom of the moments are related to the local joint coordinate system (axis
    x in the direction of the line, axis y as tangent and axis z as normal to the surface plane). On
    Check mark means that the twist is free and the cut size is not transferred. Es
    You can also enter the constant of a torsion spring.

    There is already an interesting technical article on the subject of line joints on our website .
