adhesive shell gap

Restriction: Only available in LS-DYNA.
This realization creates rows of HEXA elements for the body. The HEXA elements project and connect to the adjoining shell/solid elements by touching them.
Note: Uses the default parameters, material thickness lookup table, and material strength lookup table from the weld_config.ini config file to set the default attributes for the created MATL100 material.
The adhesive - shell gap exists in exactly the same configuration with the following additional names:
  • HC glue mastic sealer
  • HC glue spot sealer
  • HC glue glass adhesive

This is in order to keep the realization names from HyperCrash.

The realization uses the prop_dyna_matnum_seamarea.tcl post script.
