Question about truss joint analysis in ansys workbench

  1. May 8, 2013 #1
    Dear Friends,
    Hi,I am senior mechanical engineering student and I'm working on my
    final project which is designing an AGV vehicle.I designed a space
    chassis for it and have a problem with analyzing the joint I designed
    using Solidworks.I do not know how can I should define support
    conditions and loads in a specific joint.I've attached pictures in
    order to illustrate my problem better.since for the simplification of
    the analysis,I want to analyze the joint separately but how can I
    manage this in a way that other loads and displacements affect that
    joint correctly?Could you help me with that?
    Thank you for your help in advance.
