Using To Ground Springs
Use a To Ground spring to connect to ground a point, multiple points, a vertex, a point feature, or a single pattern of points.
* In FEM mode, To Ground springs are not supported for ANSYS.
Use the following areas on the To Ground version of the Spring Definition dialog box to define an advanced spring:
Properties—Use any stiffness properties previously defined for your model, or define new stiffness properties.
CSYS—Define the orientation of the spring by selecting a coordinate system. This defines the directions to which the spring stiffnesses refer. You can select any coordinate system for this purpose. The default is the WCS. This option is not available if you are working on a 2D model.
