  1. 解析結果から変形の様子を"Capture Graphics Area VIdeo"機能を使用してアニメーション出力することがあります。ここで固有値解析などで複数の周波数で解が得られた際に、一括で複数を選択してアニメーション出力する方法はないでしょうか?今は周波数ごとに"Make Current”で表示するモードを切り替えつつ"Capture Graphics Area VIdeo"をその都度実行しています。
  2. Hi, I ran a modal analysis of my model and somehow the MODAL EFFECTIVE MASS exceeds the total mass in some cases. I assume that this is not how it should be? Can anyone help please?
  3. Hi, How can i extract results from an modal analysis? I want something that looks similiar to this: Right now I can only find the modes in the Output file, but the percentage of mass would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hello, i want to reduce the dynamic stiffness of a rubber bearing by changing the geometry. I have an approximate idea of the "optimized" geometry of this rubber bearing therefore I created morphvolumes and changed the specified area (solid elements) by translating the handles. I saved these changes as shapes which are my design variables. I know that the optimum is between the initial model and the changed model. I want to do an optimization with optistruct to find the optimum. To reduce the dynamic Stiffness i need 3 responses and an equation (dont know another way so far). The calculation of the dynamic Stiffness is simple: Cdyn = Force/Displacement. First i defined an equation with the dequation-panel: F(x,y)=x/y --> where x is the "frf force (ELFORCE)" and y the displacement (frf displacement) which are two of the three responses. The Last response is "function" which includes the dequation and the other two responses defined before. I would like to minimize the response "function" (which is the dynamic stiffness). But it's not possible to create an objective which minimizes my response "function", i get following error: *** ERROR # 1812 *** Multiple responses are assigned to the DESOBJ objective function. A MINMAX/MAXMIN objective function definition with DOBJREF should be used instead. Number of responses = 1000 1) Do you know what the maximum number of responses is? (It's an frequency response analyis from 0 Hz to 3000 Hz with an increment of 3, thats why its 1000 responses (i guess)) . I created an obj reference "dobjref" which includes the response "function", then i created MINMAX objective.This works, and i can start the optimization but here i have some questions: 2) When i define the obj reference i can choose neg and pos reference. What can i do with these references? 3) I don't really know what this minmax function does. Does it minimize the maximum value of the equation? It is not my goal to minimize only the maximum value of the equation, it's rather minimizing the area of the function. 4) Is it normal that optistruct finds a solution after 2 iterations? I have two different shapes and i would expect that it takes a lot of time and iterations to find the optimum. I guess i did something wrong or forgot sth. Sry for asking so many questions and sry for my bad english. I thank you so much in advance. Regards, Fatih Uysal
  5. How to conduct Non-linear Modal analysis ?
  6. Hello Experts, I am trying to perform a complex eignevalue/ brake squeal problem on Optistruct 11. The error that i am getting is as follows:- *** ERROR # 1461 *** Card "STATSUB(PRELOAD)" is not allowed for this subcase type. I have used Generic as a solver instead of Modal Complex Eigenvalue as it doesn't support Statsub. Can anyone please explain how to resolve this issue. I have been following quite a few tutorials and have followed exactly the steps mentioned but cant get around this error. Thanks
  7. Hi, I'm trying to run a fatigue analysis using acceleration as load, but I don't know how to set the FATLOAD card with an acceleration load. My objective is to simulate a shacker test and verify the life and damage that the part will get when vibrates in 1G acceleration. Modal and frequency response analysis are ok, my only problem is with the fatigue analysis. If anyone knows how to proceed, please let me know. Thanks!
  8. Hello Everyone! I am doing a response spectrum analysis an like to retrieve a eigenvalues and vectors from normal modes analysis which has already done. I hav saved the eigen value using EIGVNAME = modes and EIGVSAVE = 100. The file is has saved as modes.100.eigv. While doing RSPEC, I retreived the eigv using EIGVRETRIEVE = 100 and same EIGVNAME. But Solving throws an error as, *** ERROR # 372 *** Number of MPC constraints in file modes.100.eigv 474 does not match current value 0. Can Someone figure it out . Thanks in Advance -RathinaVel
  9. A propeller shaft experiences opposing torques on its ends, while rotating. What types of analyses are generally carried out on a propeller shaft, apart from static, modal, fatigue? What are the reversing loads to be given in a fatigue analysis? (The only reversing force that comes to my mind is the shaft's self weight, acting sinusoidally. Are there any other reversing loads in a rotating shaft?)
  10. Hello everyone, I want to do a prestress modal analysis? However, I don't know how to set up the case. Is there any example? Thank you Best Wishes Roy

    Is there any tutorials or reference exercise in order to learn MFLUID in optistruct for modal analysis? Regards
  13. Dear I have an assembly that I have decided to divide into 5 subassembly (A,B,C,D,E) Using Craig-Bampton method, each of this assembly has been condensed (h3ddmig but I have tried with .pch also) using only the visualization of plot elements (plotel3 and 4) In the master model, the residual nodes (aset) of each assembly are connected each other using beam and rod with different dof (in order to simulate a mechanism) and a rigid with the master node grounded and I asked for a certain number of modes (normal modes). NO ERROR in the output file but neither results (h3d) but a serie of OSxxxx_er.rs~ This is the what i have in the output: Lanczos solver warnings for eigenvalue subcase 1. - At some point in the process, an inconsistent inertial count was found. This implies that some of the calculated frequencies may be inaccurate, especially the duplicated frequencies. To avoid this, specify both bounds and keep the bound away from the currently calculated frequencies. *** warning *** the rayleigh quotient x'kx / x'mx for the 1-th eigenvector does not match the computed eigenvalue lambda ( 1): -9.86447590101136D-06 x' k x : 5.21843506993811D-05 x' m x : 1.00000000000000D+00 discrepancy : 6.20488266003924D-05 *** warning *** the rayleigh quotient x'kx / x'mx for the 2-th eigenvector does not match the computed eigenvalue lambda ( 2): 4.00771124962063D-05 x' k x : 7.34242225598191D-05 x' m x : 1.00000000000000D+00 discrepancy : 3.33471100636129D-05 *** warning *** the rayleigh quotient x'kx / x'mx for the 3-th eigenvector does not match the computed eigenvalue lambda ( 3): 5.23449252423092D-05 x' k x : 1.36220146252925D-04 x' m x : 1.00000000000000D+00 discrepancy : 8.38752210106160D-05 eigenvalues and eigenvector residuals ------------------------------------- eigenvalues norm of estimated (radian/sec)**2 residual accuracy --------------- -------- --------- -9.86447590101136D-06 2.4225D-06 2.4225D-06 4.00771124962063D-05 1.2132D-06 1.2132D-06 5.23449252423092D-05 3.9402D-07 3.9402D-07 *** Warning for eigenvalue subcase 1 Number of modes requested = 3 (0 = all) Number of modes found = 3 warning status index = 10 maximum relative discrepancy = 0.83875E-04 (Scratch disk space usage for starting iteration = 1 MB) Any suggestion?

  14. How to perform simulation (Nastran) on a system by applying a sinusoidal load of 0.1g which swept from 10-50 Hz which varies at rate of 1Hz/min ??? How to use the Time domain in solver deck? In Modal Frequency Response i don't use varying rate (1 Hz/min) . So please let me know how to apply the time here.....!!!
  15. Hello everyone, I'm trying to set up a direct transient analysis of the beam you see in the picture below (simplified geometry): The beam is meshed with tetra elements. On top the beam is constrained in all dof. In the middle of the beam is a hump and the mass of it has an influence on the eigenfrequency of the beam. At the lower end of the beam a periodically enforced displacement in the range of the eigenfrequency (3 kHz < f < 4 kHz) of the beam is applied. With the FE analysis I want to get information about the following questions: What is the stress at the top of the beam? Later I would like to get information about fatigue. What is the eigefrequency of the beam? What is the exact displacement of the hump in the middle of the beam when a certain displacement is applied at the lower end with its eigenfrequency? So far I've tried to adapt the tutorial "OS-T: 1310 Direct Transient Dynamic Analysis of a BracketOS" to my purposes but I have problems with applying the periodically enforced displacement. Can someone tell me what the best way is to realize this problem with optistruct? Thank you in advance Felix Link to the tutorial: https://altairhyperworks.com/hwhelp/Altair/2017/help/os/topics/solvers/direct_transient_dynamic_anlaysis_bracket_r.htm#direct_transient_dynamic_anlaysis_bracket_r
  16. Hi, I am trying to change the animation mode in hyperview to "Set Modal Animation Mode" using tcl command.will be great if some can help me out. Thanks in advance Regards, Emil
  17. Hello, I am trying to do a linear buckling analysis on a telescopic mast of 12m. The assembly has a blend of 1D, 2D & 3D elements followed by contacts. Anyways i have taken care of all the parameters like element quality, free edges, T connections etc. As usual, I carried out a FREE-FREE Analysis first followed by MODAL & then a STATIC Analysis (Gravity Loading). All the rigid body modes have been eliminated and my modal frequency are as follows 0.676, 0.677, 6.75, 6.78, 19.53, 19.70, 39.55, 39.71, 45.30, 59.39. I don't know why the modal frequency fetched such initial low values and how to interpret the intermediate frequencies occurring in pairs? The Static Analysis results are also satisfactory with a max displacement of 0.235 mm (Mag) and stress of 11.34 MPa.The stress flow pattern is also satisfactory. Now when I simulate a linear buckling analysis I get this error: ERROR 165- Gram-Schmidt reorthogonalization did not converge. This is caused by ill-conditioning of the shifted matrix in Lanczos run. I have gone through a few other posts in this forum which said to remove rigid body modes, but i don't have any rigid body modes as such. And it is quite evident from the static analysis that my model is well connected and contacts are acting. Could you please let me know how to resolve this issue? Thank you.

  19. can anyone explain Mode Super position method briefly ?
  20. Hello, I'm having troubles setting up a topography optimization using plies. The model is a heatshield with 3 different layers(thickness) and Im using PCOMPP card as property to them. I believe that the optimization settings are correct, because I had already used the same settings in a previous single layer model and it went ok. But when I try using stacked layers something goes wrong. Im getting the following error: *** ERROR # 79 *** DTPG data does not create any DVGRID data. There are no free referenced GRIDs. There may be no elements associated with the PSHELL data. LOAD or BOTH may be specified and all grids may be loaded. BC, SPC, or BOTH may be specified and all grids may be SPCed. Any thoughts?? If there is some paper relating modal+plies+optimization that can be provided I'll appreciate. Thanks in advance.
  21. Can we use symmetry in modal analysis? When I did with symmetry and without symmetry, I noticed huge difference in the first modal frequency. And this forum, advices against using symmetry for modal analysis http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=333936 But my part is a simple plate where even the constraints are also symmetric. Can anyone adivce me on this. Thanks.
  22. To evaluate the response of a structure submitted to a periodic sine wave force in the time domain, can I define the OptiStruct loadstep as "transient direct"? Does "transient direct" and "transient modal" differ in computational cost only?
  23. Hi! I tried to make a modal analisys of a model composed by many components and different materials. The result shows only one component moving and the others no, it seems that each component is not in contact with the others. What's the error that i made? Grazie
  24. Dear all, I am trying to output modal strain energy for a component. Despite having followed the manual carefully, I am still unable to see modal strain energy results in the h3d file when I view it on Hyperview. Though I can't share my model files due to privacy, below images show the settings I use for the load step. I also show the mode set settings, as I intend to output modal strain energy only for the first mode. What I basically do is I define a load step of the type freq. resp (modal) with a method (struct) that is EIGRL (the first 15 modes, excluding rigid body modes). No spc. Analysis type set to MODES. For OUTPUT, I select only MODALSE. Please see below images for details on the settings I am using. I have also tried adding an OUTPUT control card with settings H3D, ALL, BYITER. Unfortunately, I was still unable to print modal strain energy results in the result file. I would appreciate any information on how I can print modal strain energy values in the result file. Best regards, Deniz Bilgili Note: I am using Hyperworks 17
