Shuffling phase in composite optimisation of a formula student monocoque

Recommended Posts

Hi,


 


I am currently trying to do composite optimisation of a carbon fibre sandwich structure monocoque. I have been following the  "composite optimisation of a formula student monocoque" tutorial on the Altair university training website and am up to the shuffling stage however am not getting any results and getting this message:


 


 *** WARNING # 1569

 for element id = -70001.

 Thickness is zero for this composite. This will produce meaningless stress

 results and may cause singularity of the global stiffness matrix.

  

 *** WARNING # 1569

 for element id = -70002.

 *** More of WARNING messages # 1569 were suppressed...

  

 thanks in advance for any advice.

thanks for your reply, the only other warning/error I'm getting is this:


*** WARNING 1932:     PROD  ID   11 is not referenced.


Any ideas?


 


On another note, going back to the free sizing phase -  the optimisation doesnt do anything if my laminate has plies any thinner than 2mm thickness resulting in a much heavier chassis than the one I'm trying to optimise even after free sizing. IS there away round this?  


 


Thanks
