Error when applying moment load

Experimenter

Hello everyone!
I am trying to apply a moment force to a spline set. Moments added onto the end.Moments added onto the end.

The current error I get is:  "Moment(1)" has an incompatible mesh when applying moment to splines

How can I correctly apply the torque load to my splines(Torques only work with cylinders)?

Thanks!

  Hello,

Another solution may be :

- Create manually an extra node on the axis of rotation,

- Connect it to the nodes of your splines (to do it, use 1D Connection on the fem toolbar, choose a RBE2 connection element),

- Apply the moment load only on this extra node,

- Solve...
