    Contact Energy too high

    HI Andy, I have used MAT/LAW2. Since it is as side impact analysis, I presume the kinetic energy would come down after impact. I have plotted other energies, all of it are negligible or zero. I am using a meshed cylinder with /RBODY. I have also tried it with the /RWALL option, and the values seem to be the same. What are the friction parameters that are recommended? And also how do I define the inertia? Just to clarify, it is a single component test. Thanks, Vishruth

    Contact Energy too high

    Hi Ivan, I managed to figure out why the contact energy was that high. It was a modeling mistake. However, the Kinetic energy after impact still seems to be very high. I have used the suggested parameters for the contact ( self contact ). My component does not seem to absorb much energy. What could be the error? Unfortunately , I will not be able to share the model.

    Contact Energy too high

    Hello all, I am trying to run a pole impact simulation for a side sill. The following are the plots i got for the diff global variables. However, the contact energy seems to be too high, and the kinetic energy even after impact has a very high value. What could be the reason for this? I have used TYPE 7 contact for the self contact of the sill, and also for the contact between the rigid pole and the side sill.

    Creating a material database

    Hi @Pranav Hari I have shared two example files. Could you please check it and let me know?

    Creating a material database

    Hi @Pranav Hari @karthikeyan Thangavelu, I have created the include file. But when i import the solver deck, it shows the following error. Warning: starter Input Deck contains Keyword which is CURRENTLY UNSUPPORTED in HM present at line number 27 Summary:Feinput finished with 0 errors and 1 warnings. My input deck has only 26 lines. I've also tried it with a more complex file which I could run before, but it shows the same error.

    Creating a material database

    Hi @Pranav Hari, For radioss to be able to read the include file, what should I save the file as? What should the file extension be?

    Creating a material database

    Hi @Pranav Hari, So the simplest way of say creating a MAT/LAW2 would be to copy the Example, as shown in the picture below in the text editor ( .rad file ) and edit the parameters as required? Am i right?

    Creating a material database

    Hi @Pranav Hari, I want to know how to work with text files. For instance, I have come across a .k file which contains the material database, which I inlcude in the master model for LS-dyna solver. And similarly a .bdf file for the optistruct solver. How do I create one for RADIOSS, without using the GUI? Thanks

    Creating a material database

    Hello @Pranav Hari , I have an Abaqus material card. I need to convert this to a RADIOSS card. How do i do it?

    Creating a material database

    Hello all, Could someone please tell me how to do the above? Thank you
  12. Hello all, How do I create a material database using a text editor such as Notepad or Jedit, so that I can include it in the Master model as an Include file. I need to create a card for RADIOSS. Is there any documentation or videos that I can watch? Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Youngs Modulus

    Hello all, I have created a laminate by specifiying different plies and their orientation on ESAcomp. How do I find out the Youngs modulus of the laminate as whole? Is there an option on ESAComp that give the laminate properties, specifically Youngs modulus. Thank you

    Hello all, I want to mesh a complex solid with a very small thickness of about 2.5mm. I tried auto extracting the mid surface, but the result seems to be very bad. The surfaces tend to be disconnected, and the mid surface does not look good. What would be the right way to go about the meshing of this part? Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Thank you @Ivan for all the help!
