  1. Thank you very much. Is MASS parameter literally a mass of a spring? My spring weighs 0,002 kgs and has K = 3120 N/m. Will it be enough if i fill in only these two spaces in a P4_SPRING definition?
  2. Hello, I am trying to perform impact analysis and my model contains a compression spring which works under axial loading. Which model should I choose? Will P4_SPRING be OK? Does K parameter refer to spring stiffness? Could anybody shed some light on the matter? Thanks in advance.
  3. Thanks a lot for your reply! Indeed, solution ratios are about 0,1. Thus, the flow I am simulating is not a steady flow. I am working on a quadcopter model and its propellers are modeled by fan components. Are steady state results even possible to obtain in this case? Or should I perform transient analysis?
  4. Hello, I am quite new to Acusolve and I need to clear my doubts about convergence and residual ratio. My simulation has maximum time steps set to 300 and convergence tolerance set to 0.001. I am monitoring residuals in AcuProbe (see attachment). Correct me if I am wrong - shouldn't the simulation have already stopped at about 60 Time Step? Does it have other stop criteria? Thanks for any help.
  5. Hi, I am a very beginner in tcl so I have decided to share my doubts. In my model I have to distribute a force using RBE3 element. The inconvenience is that the number of independent nodes is limited to 1000 in Hypermesh and I have much more nodes on the face I want to apply load to. Thus, I am wondering if it is possible to write a tcl macro that selects every second (every third, etc.) node on a given face. I would appreciate any help.
  6. Hi, sorry for the delay. Yes, I am using Student Edition. I've tried unistalling 2017 version and installing 14.0 but the problem still remains. Operating system details: Windows 7 64 bit Intel Core i7-2670QM @ 2.20GHz RAM: 16 GB Thank you very much for any help.
  7. I am struggling with the same problem. In the working folder I have .hm, .fem, .tcl and .cfg files only. Anybody can help us?
