Hi, I am a new HyperWorks user and I’m trying to setup an topology optimization. As optimization constraint, I want to declare a maximum force on my SPC’s, but I don’t know how. The SPC’s I’m using are respectively bolted holes. I have defined them with RBE2 Elements with a calculated node in the middle of the hole. In the post-processor I already can see the forces on these SPC’s. Is it possible to define these forces with a maximum value in the pre-processor? How can I optimize these SPC's forces to an maximum value of force they can withstand? Thank your beforehand for your answer.
