Defining Sloped Diaphragms in Altair® S-FRAME™

In this video we will look at how we can define a rigid diaphragm on a slope by rotating the joint coordinate system of the joints within the diaphragm constraint.

This video discusses the use of:

  1. The Rigid Diaphragm Panel Element Type
  2. The User Coordinate System Tool
  3. The Joint Displacement Direction Tool.
