SIR, My aim is to do the size optimization of the Tower of Rod Element.The end results only shows output of Result Type as displacement & stresses not of element thickness or radius.What to do?can i do the size optimization over the problem or is it not possible.Please resolve the problem. SIZE-01.fem SIZE-01.hm SIZE-01.mvw
hello, I am using Altair 14.0 student version, i want contour plot for element thickness result (i am doing topology optimization). but it shows only element density contour in result type. how can i get element thickness contour plot. thanks
Hi, I did shell mesh by extracting the elements from Tet mesh. Technically they should be connected, just for ex: a cover(shell mesh) on a solid part(Tet mesh). So here I did not extract any mid surface. How should I add thickness here? I am sure mid surface thickness is not going to work. I tried with Mid-mesh thickness as well, it di not work. Could anyone please suggest
Hi, I am working on a laminate optimization. I'd like to do the three phases: Free Size Optimization, Size Optimization and Shuffle Optimization mentioned in the composite manual. My question is how can I connect the element faces in the 3rd direction with other elements of different components. In the attached picture I would like to connect the yellow part with the different laminate layers. Are there any solutions available, I could not find equal problems in the composite manual. thank you in advance, Martin
