  1. Sorry mate, I forgot it ! If I understand, do you want to apply an SPC following a "relative" direction ?
  2. RBE2 allow you to define a rigid body whose independent dofs are specified on the first node (which is single = only one node) and the dependent dofs are specified on the second one (they can be more than one node ...) . RBE3 allows you to define the motion of one node (we call it referent point) by an average (weighted average) of the motions of a set of nodes.
  3. Hi, I'm gonna start with the second question. The difference between S2S, N2S or N2N discretization is : S2S allows to create a lot of contact element, so with it we will obtain a normal contact pressure more uniform and smooth that the others discretization. I can send you an academic contact model if you want the see the difference between S2S and N2S. Best regards,
  4. Yes. You can use elasto-visco-plastic (Hollomon and Norton law or ...) behaviour law as well. I joined an example of the modelling procedure. Cheers, Lauro-Oudin2003_Article_StaticAndDynamicBehaviourOfAPo.pdf
  5. Hey Luis, Are you working on squeal simulation ? Best regards, FaroukM
  6. Yeah you have it. It's non-linear static (index 5x2))
  7. Hi PrasannaK, Any solution for the contact law implementation ? Cheers,
  8. Why you don't have it ? If you create a new "Load Steps" you will not see Subcase Definition ?
  9. Hi Ierik, There is a nice tutorial regarding pretension. Please find it in the following link https://altairhyperworks.com/hwhelp/Altair/2017/help/os/topics/solvers/1d_3d_pretensioned_bolt_analysis_of_ic_engine_components_r-1.htm#Z_1d_3d_pretensioned_bolt_analysis_of_ic_engine_components_r Cheers,
  10. Hi mate ! You can use for example TIE constrain to link the master surface with the slave one. Normally, in contact problem we refine the mesh of the slave surface. But I think in your case, linear static analysis, there will be not so much difference. You can use the automatic mesher and mesh the parts using Tetra approximation. It's okay if you use Tetra finite element ... But in Nonlinear static analysis, we recommend to refine contact interfaces (slave surface) with S2S discretization to ensure the convergence of the contact pressure. You welcome mate
  11. Hi guys ! For the TPU 95 A material, you can model it using MATHE card. Normally, we perform an optimisation simulation in order to identify the right coefficients (we assume Neo-Hook, Odgen, ... behaviour law). And then for FEM simulation, we use what we identified (in the optimisation procedure) to run for example Tensil Simulation ... Cheers,
  12. Hi Prasannak, Thank you for your answer Yeah I now exponential, cubic laws .... The idea is for each NSET (Contact interface) we compute our own law ... For example, we assume that we want to perform contact simulation between 2 bodies (see the model below). The idea is to divide slave surface into 6 sub-surfaces and for each sub-surface we want to use a specific contact law (house development). Best regards,
  13. Hi everybody, There is someone here who has tried to implement (code) new contact laws in OptiStruct ? Best regards, Farouk M,
