probx is on a distinguished road
Hello folks,

first of all I'am using Ansys Workbench 17.1 for quite some time but aside from a few short command snippets I'am not so good in APDL.
Thanks for your help and consideration.

One corner of a rectangular glass pane has to be vertical displaced out of plane, so the glass pane gets a curvature.

But I donīt want to set the displacement directly on the corner of the glass pane, but on a substructure, which is circumferential glued with the pane.
Accordingly the glass pane follows the displacement. (see sketch)

the substructure should consist of rigid bars/beams connected with hinge joints.

For the glass pane I use a shell element. Which possibilities are there for modelling rigid bars/beams?
Most important is the glued joint. How and out of which elements can I model it to get tensile and shear stress?
(If it is important: the glued joint is quiet elastic, 5mm thick and 10mm wide)

Or has someone an entirely better approach for this problem?

Thanks a lot
