Hello community, I got a little bit confused while reading the OptiStruct 2017 User’s Guide. There I found that OptiStruct selects automatically the best optimization algorithm. Five items have been listed there (page 10-11): - Optimality criteria method - Convex approximation method - Method of feasible directions - Sequential quadratic programming - Advanced approximations . My question is: Does OptiStruct still selects the Optimality criteria method automatically? And for which type of optimization? There is no information about it in the User’s Guide or Reference Guide. I want to optimize the topology of the 2 dimensional MMB-Beam (see atteched figure). My objective is to minimize compliance subjected to a volume fraction constraint. I found that for my type of problem I shoud use 'OPTMETH=DUAL' since I have a large number of design variable and only one constraint. So I cannot choose the Optimality criteria method in topology optimization? Many thanks in advance Nahid
Hi, I have an algorithm for the assignment of mobile stations in WinProp and I am struggling in adding this algorithm to the software. I have read the part of the manual where it shows the API Functions (which by the way I cannot find the NetManTrafficCore.pp file), that are used in Visual Studios but I still don't understand how to implement my own algorithm in WinProp. Also, where can I find the Visual Studio library that will help me in writing the algorithm? Can anybody help with details please? Thanks.
