Helpful Hints and Tips: Constraining Rigid Body Motion
Best practices and case studies for applying rigid body constraints (in the form of the Rigid Body, Node and Spring Coeff. methods) in Planar and 3D elasticity.
Note: rigid body constraints are only applicable to limit zero strain modes, and not to react loads.
