Glossary Term

If any surface in space intersects another surface or a member, a complex line is created at the section edge or a node at the intersection. These intersection lines or intersection points are required for a mechanically consistent model.

The 'Create Intersection' function allows you to automatically generate an intersection line between two surfaces and create the corresponding surface division. The intersection point between a surface or a member with a member is generated via the 'Connect Lines/Members' function.
