  1. Hi All, is there a way to perform a thermo-structural analysis of two bodies in contact, in which the energy related to the contact tangent force is converted to heat? I want to obtain the temperature map in a brake, given the geometry, the material properties and the contact force. Thanks, Enrico
  2. One more question: is there a way to couple structural and thermal simulations? My goal is estimating the temperature of the cylinder, due to the heat flux generated by the friction.
  3. Hi Farouk, if you increase the scale of the deformed shape, the nodes of the block go into the cylinder. In the picture I posted, near the contact, the displacement of the block's nodes is higher than the cylinder's nodes. Is there any option I should activate? Thanks, Enrico
  4. Hi All, I'm modelling a simple contact problem between a cylinder and a curved block. I cannot understand why the displacement of the two bodies are not consistent (there is penetration). Could you help me please? contact.fem
  5. Unfortunaterly it still doesn't work I have to punch a file with the spcforce at every iteration. It works for stresses, but not with spcf. COuld you help me please? Thanks
  6. Hi, I'm getting the same problem using Hypermesh 2017.2 Any suggestions? Thanks, Enrico
  7. Hi Tinh, where could I find a reference guide to learn how to use the commands? Thanks, Enrico
  8. Hi All, I have to select a surface, but I can't use the surface ID. is there a way to select a surface that is X mm far from a specific point? Where can I found a manual or a reference guide for the tcl language? Thanks, Enrico
  9. Hi All, I have to print in a txt file the value of the maximum von mises stress over the entire model, without opening HyperView Is there any available routine to find the maximum? Thanks, Enrico
  10. Hi All, I have to run in batch mode a tcl file, in which a meshing process is recorded. Is there a guide or some tutorials? The tcl is perfectly working if i run it from Hypermesh, but it doesn't if I use hmbatch.exe Thanks, Enrico
  11. Hi All, I’m working on the structural design of an orthogrid cylinder. I’d like to perform a DOE, in order to assess the optimum number of ring stiffeners. Is there a way to do that with HyperStudy or HyperMorph? Is it possible to automate the process, linking a parametric CAD model in Solidworks to Optistruct? Thank you for your time Enrico
  12. Hi All, I need to apply periodic boundary conditions in a simulation. My goal is finding the equivalent Elastic modulus of a unit cell for lattice structures. I've found that in Optistruct it is possible to use PERBC and RELOC, but I cannot find any documentation, except for the reference guide, that is not so clear. Could you please help me? Enrico
