Hello, I am wondering if there is a way to view results of forces on 3D elements? I have meshed my object initially with 1d beam elements and then I can see the force results using ELFORCE output, but it does not work with 3D elements. Is there any other way to view forces on 3D elements in results? Thank you in advance.
Hello, I'm a beginner user of HyperMesh and OptiStruct and I have to create a 3D mesh of a solid CAD (1 component) to perform a linear static analysis and to do a lattice topological optimization later on. After the import of the .step component, I tried to mesh it with the Quick TetraMesh tool but it generates a "meshed component" different from the first one, as well as a new material. How can I make the 3D mesh directly on my component (as I can do through "Volume tetra" tool by the onglet "Elems to Surf/Solid Comp")? Or, how can I manage the meshed component and the new material created in order to complete the analysis? Thank you in advance,
Hi, The basic problem here is that we have a solid that contains a closed hole inside it. We have all the surface meshed in 2d mesh. When we are trying to create the 3D mesh. Hypermesh does not recognize the outside volume. It only recognizes the inside hole and meshes it as a solid. I have two basic ways to bypass that problem. 1) Use the volume meshing instead of "2d meshing and then 3d meshing". 2) Add a tiny little hole in the original volume to make the inside hole not closed anymore. I am wondering what are the reasons that causing that problem? How does hypermesh define the geometry? (I am always wondering why we can release the points in hypermesh) And are there any other more solutions to the problem?
Is the Solid map option usable only in case the solid volume between the two meshed surfaces does not contain any voids , like bolt holes ? in the case of contrary what can be the mesh strategy to mesh a volume that has some holes that pass through the body ?
