Help needed... What is the best method to model the constraints between end plate and a pipe and connect it to a loading point ?

Diana's picture

Hi all,

I'm modelling a pipe in ABAQUS subjected to internal pressure as step one then an eccentric tension load is applied as step two. I'm trying to find the best method in connecting the end plate with the pipe and the reference point of loading with the end plate. using kinematic coupling gives different stress distribution on the pipe than using tie constraint. Any idea ?
