I need modeshapes for a tapered beam, so I am using Ansys. By going through the tutorials I found that a beam can be modeled by creating a line and meshing it using Beam elements and assigning real constants. How can I use the beam elements for a tapered beam where the real constants are not constant. I tried to use tapered beam element but is of no use as it the created all elements of same real constants creating a profile similar to a hack saw.
Can anyone please help me how to mesh a tapered beam.
Awaiting the reply....
