Patch types for structural analysis?
Hello all,

I am trying to acquire some basic knowledge about structural analysis in OpenFOAM but have found the tutorials somewhat lacking what I seek.

What kind of patch types are available when doing structural sims. in OF? Is tractionDisplacement the only one and how do I then specify the different types of joints typically used in structural analysis (pin joint / roller joint etc.)?

Any help or links are appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
