  1. Hi, I am trying to do a simulation with prescribed body motion. I referred the two links mentioned above to do my simulation and my simulation was a failure. There is no displacement when viewed in the h3d file. These are the screenshots of what I basically did: The node at the end of the system has been assigned a local coordinate system and SPC, SPCD pair has been defined at the same node. Another issue I noticed was that the SPCD always resets itself to 0. (I want to define 30) Thanks in advance!
  2. Hello, I am trying to do a size optimization on a component with PSOLID. The manual I have been referring explicitly states that size optimization has to be done on either 2D or 1D. But I have been asked to do size or gauge optimization on a model with solid mesh. Is there any way that I can achieve this? Thanks.
  3. What does the "SCALE" value mean in "FATLOAD" keyword? After referring to some online manual, it was mentioned to maintain a scale factor of 5. It is mentioned in the same manual that certain fatigue load should be applied and that same load has been applied in LOADCOL and the additional scale factor of 5 in FATLOAD. We aren't sure if they are applying 5 times the load mentioned. Also, what exactly is LDM in the FATLOAD keycard?
