Frequency Response Modal Analysis: Shape Optimization to reduce dynamic Stiffness

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

First of all i want to explain what i did so far.

 

I performed a frequency response modal Analysis to investigate the dynamic stiffness of my component in Hypermesh/Optistruct. I performed an Analysis with Optistruct and my results are the frequency-depended Displacement (s) and SPC-Force (F). Then i plotted the dynamic stiffness by calculating Cdyn=F/s. The results are exactly what i expected. 

 

After that i changed the structure of my component using Mesh Morphing and recalculated the dynamic stiffness of the changed component. This had a huge effect on the dynamic stiffness.

 

I saved the morph-changes as shapes and created a shape design variable. I want to do a shape optimization to reduce (minimize) the dynamic stiffness.

 

Now my questions:

 

1. Is it possible to do a shape-optimization to reduce the dynamic stiffness (reduce the quotient F/s) with optistruct?

 

2. When it is possible, can you give me a hint, how i have to proceed with the Responses, constraints and objectives for the optimization?

 

 

Regards,
Fatih Uysal
