I have modeled a continuous beam. One of the supports should only act from a deformation of 10 mm. How to set a non-linearity like this?


The definition of slippage is recommended here. To do this, you have to set the partial effect in the 'Non-linearity' edit dialog box of the 'Edit Nodal Support' dialog box. In the 'Non-linearity - Partial Effect' dialog box, it is now possible to define a slippage in the respective area. The adjoining diagram is used for the check, see Figure 1.
