How is it possible to model wall and floor slabs in a member model?

Answer

With the “Nodal Constraint” function, it is possible to ideally connect nodes.

Two types of coupling are available for selection.

For a “Plane” coupling type, the displacements in the coupling plane and the rotations are coupled perpendicular to the plane. Thus, you can model, for example, stiffening slabs.

With the “Equal Condition Constraint” coupling type, you can define the coupled displacements and rotations between nodes individually.

The nodal constraint function has already been shown on the Info Day. You can find them at the end of the attached video.
