Products: ABAQUS/Standard ABAQUS/Explicit ABAQUS/CAE
|SPRINGA||Axial spring between two nodes, whose line of action is the line joining the two nodes. This line of action may rotate in large-displacement analysis.|
|SPRING1(S)||Spring between a node and ground, acting in a fixed direction|
|SPRING2(S)||Spring between two nodes, acting in a fixed direction|
SPRINGA: 1, 2, 3. The translational degree of freedom in the 3-direction is not activated in an ABAQUS/Standard analysis if both nodes of the element are connected to two-dimensional entities such as two-dimensional analytical rigid surfaces, two-dimensional beam elements, etc.
SPRING1 or SPRING2: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6. If you specify a local orientation for the spring, these are local degrees of freedom. Otherwise, these are global degrees of freedom.
SPRINGA: X, Y, Z
SPRING1 or SPRING2: None needed, since there is no geometry associated with these elements
