### Impose displacement as a function of displacments of another node

Hi, is it possible to define a non-linear function of  (XF^2+YF^2)^0.5 of node N1 and use it to impose a displacement on degree of freedom DX of node N2? The relation should be imposed within a STAT_NON_LINE solution(not sequential between different load steps).
I think e.g. FORMULE() only works to create a nodal function based on variables of the same node.

### Re: Impose displacement as a function of displacments of another node

Hello,

Unfortunately, imposing such a non-linear relation would require to plug it directly into the source code as a non-linear relation between degrees of freedom would require it to be derivated so as to build an efficient tangent matrix. Otherwise, the non-linear algorithm is unlikely to converge.

Currently only linear relations may be imposed manually. There exists some non-linear relations that are dedicated to a special purpose such as LIAISON_SOLIDE.

You should try to define your non-linear relation « mechanically » if possible e.g. With contact or unilateral relation.

Best regards.,

Hi,
Please guide how to plug in the displacements of One node into another for a transient simulation. This functionality is very much needed.

Thanks
