Dear all, I'm working on a project as the attached image shown: We want to increase the natural frequency of the blue plate by design reinforcing components attach to the plate. Therefore we set up a design space (green block). The objective is max mode 1 frequency of the whole model, and constraint is max 0.5 volume fraction of the design space. However as the second image shown: 1. Mostly only the element on the edge of the design space are left, and it's easy to understand they WON'T help to increase the plate natural frequency at all; 2. The mid elements circled in black are "floating", meaning they are not attached to the plate at all. Could anyone help to figure out what I may do wrong in the setup? Thank you, Peter Door_opt_Topo_Opt.hm
As suggested, I clicked the result button on solver window and now can view the topo result, but why I can see nothing changed on my design area (hinge)? It remain intact after topo opt? That makes no sense... And the slider below current value that change the density threshold ranges from 0 to 0, anything goes wrong? How can I see that which part of elements is removed from the original model?
