RBE3 Weight factor calculation

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I am trying create rbe3 elems using TCL

*createmark nodes 1 101 102 103 104 105 106

*createarray 6 123 123 123 123 123 123 

*createdoublearray 6 1.23 1.23 1.23 1.23 1.23 1.23

*rbe3 1 1 6 1 6 100 123456 1.23

 

In this, How do I calculate weight factor which is in *createdoublearray?

Yes, I have to specify, 

but in ACM weld creation method RBE3 is created and upon reviewing element, it will have different weight factor values. How do I get those values here? is there any formula to calculate weight factor?
