Support Forum, Can anyone help me better understand the definition of Compliance and why we would use it in our models either as a constraint or as an objective function? Should the value of the constraint be a 0 to 1 value or any larger number? Compliance I know is designated as Strain Energy...am I the one choosing the units for that value? Is it better used as a constraint or an objective? If I want to use it in a dual thermal/structural loading model, should I use compliance/temperature as the constraint/objective? I'm really just looking for more help on this. My supervisor is asking a lot of questions about it and I don't have many answers. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks. Dylan Stelzer
We know that the Compliance in OptiStruct is a global response of the whole structure, which represents the reciprocal of global stiffness of the structure. We can also calculate the individual compliance of each element and make the summation as the global compliance. Is there a way in OptiStruct that we can get the individual compliance of each element as a response in OptiStruct? Thanks
