Beam connections (Body-To-Body or Body-To-Ground connection by beam elements) in ANSYS Mechanical: – Generally, one Beam188 element using quadratic shape functions is employed (Keyopt(3)=2): — Timoshenko beam theory, i.e. first order shear deformation theory — see: ANSYS Documentation > Mechanical APDL > Element reference > I. Element library > BEAM188 — see: ANSYS Documentation > Mechanical APDL > Theory reference > 13. Element library > 13.188. BEAM188 – 3-D 2-Node Beam – Using the BEAM Probe, only section forces and moments at the beam ends can be requested. The objective is to also make visible the stress distribution, e.g. for the von-Mises-stresses, (over cross section and beam length) in Workbench Mechanical postprocessing. See attached documents for details. Keywords: Beam connector, Body-To-Body connection, Body-To-Ground connection, equivalent stress, BEAMDIRECT, BEAMMAX_BENDING, BEAMMAX_COMBINED, Beam Section Results, Shear Correction Factor
