Import loads from AcuSolve

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a good tutorial on how to run a model in AcuSolve and import the loading conditions (i.e. pressures) into Optistruct?  Our Altair rep suggested doing so but I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing and can't find a good tutorial.  I was able to import a .fem into virtual wind-tunnel but can't get it to run.  Any direction is appreciated.

Firstly you need to ouput a text file from AcuOut in which you will find X, Y, Z, Pressure then you can use Pressure panel à linear interpolation into HM to map them on structural mesh (pay attention at the unit system).


see linear interpolation in the pressures panel help in HyperMesh


regarding vwt, you need a .nas file, please see http://training.altairuniversity.com/analysis/cfd/virtual-wind-tunnel/

Hello @ydigit,


Is there any way to still access this webinar?

Not a direct answer, but for temperature mapping there is a webinar. Pressure would be similar.


Note nomenclature changes. RADIOSS(BULK) = OptiStruct Analysis.









I am trying to do a similar thing but this has been taken down.


Thank you
