  1. Hello everyone, I am trying to perform non linear quasi static analysis on the truss problem shown in figure. The constraint is applied on bottom side and compression load is applied on top surface. I am using hyperworks 2019 version optistruct as a solver. Due to compression load, various ligament come into contact with each other and get penetrated. I want to create contact on internal surface of the structure to prevent it. I tried some options but didn't work. I will be really grateful for your kind help. Note: all the element are 3d brick element created by "solid map-line drag". Applied load is 10000 N in -y direction. newrun.sat structure.hm
  2. Hello Everyone, I want to perform sensitivity analysis with size optimization for truss structures in OptiStruct. I need the sensitivities for the objective (min(MASS)) and for all of the stress constraints of the beam elements. Furthermore, I don’t want OptiStruct to do any optimization iteration and just need the sensitivities, so I perform a zero iteration optimization run (DOPTPRM,DESMAX,0) according to the description in OS-manual (“Sensitivity Analysis”, figure 8). I use OUTPUT,ASCSENS,ALL,STRESS to write a ASCII-file (“_.asens”) with the sensitivities. I did this procedure for a simple truss example, which I have attached to this post. My specific example has 10 design variables (radius of each of the 10 beams) and a stress constraint for each beam. So the sensitivity analysis should have to calculate 10 sensitivities for each of the 21 responses. There are 21 responses because there is a stress response for each end of a beam and one response for the objective. The problem I have, is that OptiStruct does not output the sensitivities of all responses. The number of sensitivities OptiStruct outputs depends on the current values of the design variables (in my case the starting values). So if I use really good starting values for example, OptiStruct outputs nearly all of the sensitivities. The concerned responses for which the sensitivities are missing aren't written in the RETAINED RESPONSE TABLE in the out-file, too. I tried to use RESPRINT and DREPORT options to output the responses manually, but this does not affect the calculation of the sensitivities. Do you have an idea how to get all of the sensitivities?

  3. Sir can you tell me ,how can i calculate th6 NODED 11 MEMBERS TRUSS.hme weight of members of the optimised truss in the result window?I am attaching my file for you.
  4. Hello, I am new to Optistruct and having a repeating error for my 1D linear static free shape optimization of truss. When I try to run it w/Optistruct, the error that I get is: *** ERROR # 7315 *** No DSHAPE grids are on the boundary. Any ideas about a possible reason for this error? I checked card of DSHAPE and everything looks ok. Thanks, kosa26
  5. Hii, I am doing Topology Optimisation of Truss (Benchmark Problem).I am not getting proper results of topology as expected.Please do suggest me what to do for proper analysis & optimisation.I am unable to find out my mistake.I am attaching my files 6 NODED 11 MEMBERS TRUSS.fem 6 NODED 11 MEMBERS TRUSS.hm 6 NODED 11 MEMBERS TRUSS_des.h3d 6 NODED 11 MEMBERS TRUSS_s1.h3d
