Change Joint End Condition

When you initially add a joint boundary or structural interface boundary to the model, the end condition (open or closed) at each end of the joint is specified. The Change End Condition option allows you to change the end condition of existing joint boundaries or structural interface boundaries (i.e. from open to closed, or from closed to open). For details about joint end condition see the Add Joint topic.

To change the joint end condition:

  1. Select Change End Condition from the Edit sub-menu of the Boundaries menu.
  2. Use the mouse to select the joint or structural interface endpoints that you would like to change. You can click on individual endpoints or draw a selection window to select multiple endpoints.
  3. When you are finished selecting press Enter or right-click and select Done Selection.
  4. You will see the Change End Condition dialog which allows you to choose Open or Closed as the end condition for all selected endpoints. Make your selection and select [OK], and all selected endpoints will be given the specified end condition.

The joint end condition is indicated by the following symbols.
