Some Problems with FreeSize Optimization

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i got some problems with my composite optimization with free size.

 

I want to create a "Constraint" with an upper bound of 4mm refering to a response called "displacement".

 

Therefore i created the "response" called "displacement" with the type "static displacement", selected one node of my surface and chose "total displacement".

 

Now my problem: when i want to create the constraint my software outputs: "Selected subcase (lastfall) is not compatible with the type of response".

 

My loadstep is linear static with a pressure as load and a BC (Constraint, all dof checked) as SPC.

 

You can find my Altair Hyperworks File in the appendix.

 

Thank you !

Hi,

 

If you are creating constraints and responses through entity editor you may see such error sometimes.

 

Kindly, use Analysis>> Optimization>> dconstraints to create constraints.

Hi,

This looks like a known issue in HM.I hope you would have created loadstep using Modelbrowser right click then created loadstep.

Please delete current loadstep and recreate loadstep using analysis page.I checked this workaround at my end in your model & Its working.See attached screenshot for creating loadstep using anaysis page.Please update if it works for you.

Hello all,

 

I have tried the OS-5090 Thermal Optimization on Aluminum Fins tutorial, and after following all the steps, when I try to create the Objective I get the same error. I have tried deleting the loadstep that already came created in the model file and made one myself using analysis --> loadsteps --> create but the problem persists. I am using the 14 version wiht the latest update and hotfix. Is there a way to work around it or is there anything wrong with the model? Is this solved in the 2017 version?

 

Thanks a lot.

Hi MMarzana,

 

Follow these steps and try again:

 

1) Create Load step from Analysis>>LoadStep

2) Create response from Analysis>>Optimization>>Responses and refer load step if required

 

Run the analysis and check again.
