  1. Hi everyone, I am new to lattice optimization, and i want to control the diameter beam size and have a better understanding of CLEAN option. If i understood well, CLEAN option can be used with MinRad to delete beams under the radii defined in MinRAD. - When i don't touch the lattice parameter panel, CLEAN is set to YES by default and clean beams with very small radii (E-05 mm) at the end of phase 2 - When i use only MinRad (2mm) and CLEAN set to NO, it get all the beams above the radius defined. - But when i use Minrad with a radius of 2mm and CLEAN set to YES, it has trouble creating a feasible design. Is it because CLEAN option only works with very small radii ? It doesn't simply delete beam under MinRad in the end of optimization? For information, my mesh size is 5 cm, and my objectif is to create à structure with big enought beam, but with less beam without changing the mesh. Thank you in advance.
  2. I did some research and saw on Altair Documentation that both Linear and Nonlinear models are solved by Direct Methods, Boeing Solver for linear static and MUMPS solver for nonlinear static, My understanding, and what I see on my .out file, is that nonlinear models are solved iteratively instead of direct as documentation suggests; So, my next questions are: 1) NonLinear quasiStatic is solved in an iterative or direct method? 2) What does the documentation mean that the default solver for non linear static uses a direct solver? Thank you!
  3. Hi I am trying to perform a (transient) thermal analysis where a composite plate is subjected to radiation. The plate consists of 2 plies, the one on top is made of glass, the one on the bottom is made of aluminium. The radiation needs to go trough the glass and then reaches the aluminium plate. The aluminium absorbs almost all of the radiation, the glass mainly lets the radiation trough and reflects it. How would I model this? Is it possible to do a thermal simulation like this with hyperworks software, like optistruct or radioss? I already looked at the tutorials but they don't match my case. I also tried acusolve but here it is not possible either because radiation through glass cannot be simulated properly.
  4. Hello, Is there a way I can have control over how I want the model to be solved? Between Iterative and Direct Method? Can I have control on sparsity matrix? Thank you for your time!
  5. Good morning, Could you guys tell me what is the card to put together two TLOAD? For example to put different SPC we can use SPCADD. Thanks a lot in advance!
  6. Good afternoon, I have a BEAM (CBEAM) component and I would like to see how it deforms due to a VARIABLE TEMPERATURE applied to the whole BEAM. Is that possible? Obviously I would only like to see how it deforms on the direction of it's axis (as a BEAM is a 1-D element). The TEMPERATURE would go from 17 to 23 degrees in 6 hours (1 degree increment every hour) Thanks a lot in advance! Sergio
  7. I am receiving the following error while trying to run a job on a Linux cluster: (Scratch disk space usage for starting iteration = 2704 MB) *** ERROR # 158 *** Error encountered when accessing the scratch file. error from subroutine xdslrs Solver error no. = -702 This may be caused by insufficient disk space or some other system resource related limitations. Try one or more of the following workarounds if you think otherwise and if this issue happens on Windows. - Resubmit a job. - Avoid writing scratch files in the drive where the Operating System is installed (start the job on other drive or use TMPDIR/-tmpdir options). - Disable real time protection at minimum for files with extension rs~ . - Use of environment variable OS_SCRATCH_EXT=txt may help. This error was detected in subroutine adjslvtm. *** ERROR # 5019 *** Specified temprature vectors (1 - 1) out of allowed range (1 - 0). This error occurs in module "snsdrv". ************************************************************************ RESOURCE USAGE INFORMATION -------------------------- MAXIMUM MEMORY USED 4985 MB IN ADDITION 177 MB MEMORY WAS ALLOCATED FOR TEMPORARY USE INCLUDING MEMORY FOR MUMPS 2929 MB MAXIMUM DISK SPACE USED 5939 MB INCLUDING DISK SPACE FOR MUMPS 3934 MB ************************************************************************ I've tried some the troubleshooting suggestions in the error log without any luck: I've specified the scratch drive to a large file system (petabytes of storage) I've set OS_SCRATCH_EXT=txt Since this is a high performance computing environment, I don't have the ability to access "real time protection" options; however, I'm not aware of any virus protection running on the cluster and, furthermore, the OS_SCRATCH_EXT=txt should fix virus scan issues as I expect the system would let text files pass. I should note that I am trying to run this problem as a parallel job with the following command: $ALTAIR_HOME/scripts/invoke/init_solver.sh -mpi pl -ddm -np 2 -nt 8 -scr $SCRATCH -outfile $WORK <filename>.fem Below are some other relevant notes: If I try to run this job in serial (i.e., without the -mpi pl -ddm -np 2), I don't experience the above error; so, this appears to be something that arises when trying to run mpi jobs. I've tried running this job with -mpi i and my system doesn't seems to be setup for intel based mpi (unable to find required .so files). Cluster node information: Dual Socket Xeon E5-2690 v3 (Haswell) : 12 cores per socket (24 cores/node), 2.6 GHz 64 GB DDR4-2133 (8 x 8GB dual rank x8 DIMMS) Hyperthreading Enabled - 48 threads (logical CPUs) per node The $SCRATCH drive I'm pointing to is a network drive. I tried running -scr slow=1,$SCRATCH, but still get the same error. When I make the above ddm call, I have requested 2x nodes and a total of 48 mpi processes (although I'm not using them all) Thoughts?
  8. Hello, I would like to know the center of gravity of a set of elements from my model. Currently I only know how to obtain the center of gravity but for the whole model (post--> Summary) But, how can I make this with a SET? thanks in advance.
  9. Hello, I work on a suspension construction. I have done done a static analysis due to vehicle mass (I managed to do both linear and lgdisp nonlinear). However, I also need to perform a dynamic analyis due to riding over an obstacle and I have encountered few problems with the simulations: 1) As an excitation I use a displacement of a triangular shape (picture below). It works fine for the direct transient (linear), however, when performing nonlinear direct transient (with and without LGDISP on) the excitation is not as I intend it to be (second picture). The plots show the displacement in the Y direction in nodes where the displacement is applied in the model. The actual input load data is a triangle as in the first picture. Therefore, I do not understand why when performing nonlinear transient the displacement starts to increase before it is larger than 0 in the input data. There should not be any loading applied before 0.100 s and when changing to nonlinear analysis somehow there is a loading. Also the system does not go back to the zero position. 2) the second problem is that when i use nonlinear direct transient the simulations calculates without any problem but when turning on the LGDISP option I encounter convergence problems: *** ERROR # 4966 *** Minimum time increment reached, analysis aborted. I tried changing the minimum time increment but it does not help. I use TSTEPNL and NLADAPT setup. What options should I change so that the convergence problems does not happen? Thank you very much in advance for any help.
  10. Hello, What is the difference between CORD2R and CORD3R? What are their properties? If I reference joints to a specific coordinate system what would the difference be with CORD2R and CORD3R? Thank you!
  11. Hello, I am using an axial joint and want to to add motion to it. My questions are: 1) Which node moves relative to who? a. Node1 Moves and Node 2 Does not move b. Node 1 does not move and node move 2) If i was to assign a DOF = 1 in MOTNJG does this mean that the node moving wil move in the axial direction of my joint? Thank you!
  12. Hi, I want to run a topography optimization of a sheet metal component, but I would like to restrict the shape change with barrier mesh inside and outside due to the adjacent components. How can I do this?. Can someone help me with this concern?. I know that barrier mesh option is available in free shape optimization but I really want to make use of only Topography optimization as it is a sheet metal component. Thanks and regards, Punith
  13. Hı everyone, I want to do compressive analysis with optistruct. My compenent is Sheell so I used to PSHELL card. But the program want from me T parameter. I know T is Thickness and shoul be greater than one. but I dont know is it component thickness or other somethink. How do I adjust it. Thank you. .

  16. Hi, I am trying to solve a non-linear buckling analysis using Altair Hyperworks with Optistruct as a solver. I am unable to find the load step for it. Both non-linear static and linear buckling work. linear buckling won't accept NL static as input or as a STATSUB Preload. Is this option for non-linear buckling even available in this solver? or do I have to use any other solver. please advise. If there is any example available for this kind of analysis, that would be a lot of help. I couldn't find anything in the ebook "Non linear FEA using Optistruct".
  17. Hello, I work on a vehicle suspension optimization. For that purpose I need to perform a dynamic buckling analysis of a tube (meshed by 1D beam elements). I have already performed static analysis, static buckling and modal analysis and the next step is performing dynamic buckling with force impulse. In order to perform this analysis I need to apply an imperfection of the geometry (initial deformation). The imperfection is supposed to be the first buckling mode from static buckling and the corresponding displacements are assumed as a coefficient 0.01, 0.05 etc. Therefore my question is whether it is possible to apply such buckling mode imperfection in OptiStruct, if so where I can find this option? Thank you for any help in advance.
  18. Here is my .hm file. I would to connect the design and non design component as a whole but i still do not manage to do it. Please help me guysss !!!! TRY.hm
  19. Hi everyone, I am simulating a tensile test of a homogeneous isotropic material, according to the coupon bar example in "Introduction of Non Linear Finite Element Analysis using Optistruct". I imported a different material and the coupon bar geometry is a bit different. I do not understand why the numerical force -displacement curve decreases after the yielding point, while, for example in the ebook, it follows the input trend. I though the possible problems could be the definition of the true stress-strain curve, or the NLQS parameters NINC and NLOUT, the chosen finite elements (tetrahedral; I used this type because I have to calibrate the material to perform analyses on more complex geometries). Can anyone find the problem? I attach the .fem file (ModelB_prova_NLQS). In additiion I attach a model that behaves as expected (Model2_surf_prova10_NLQS ModelB_prova_NLQS.fem MODEL2_surfs_prova10_NLQS.fem
  20. Hi everyone, I need to define a surface from a set of lines that represent level curves of a set of mountains. The creation of surfaces from lines does not work well. Is there a way to obtain good surfaces? Bests Martina
  21. Hello, The Topology Optimization in Optistruct by default uses the Direct method for the Sensitivity analysis. I am predicting the result variation using the Adjoint method. It would be of great help to me if I know the way that I can make the solver use the Adjoint method of Sensitivity anslysis. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
  22. Hi guys, I would like to know if its possible to update my hyperworks 2017.2 to 2017.2.1 in order to inlude certain features especially overhang constraints in my simulation. Thank you.
  23. Hello! I want to measure the volume of a solid. I know I can find this in Tool --> Mass Calc I am interested in measuring the volume with more numerical precicion. Is there a way of increasing this? For example i would like to read more numbers beyond 2.781 as the image shows. Thank you
  24. Hi everyone, is it possible to define as input data the behaviour curve of a non linear elasto-plastic matierial in a MAT1 card image material with the NL parameters activated? I tried to import the curve, changing the TYPSTRN value, but the solver Optistruct does not start. The curve has non linear trend both in the elastic that in the plastic phase. Bests Martina
