Rim well optimization problems

Recommended Posts



when I do my optimization now, I get strange results.

Plies after Optimization.PNG

I really don't know where my fault is.


Another problem is, that I don't want to lose the no-material plies (see also:


Because, when I optimize now, I only can constrain the balance between 45°- and -45°-plies. But it is important, that the plies with no real material and the ones with CFK-Material have the same thickness, so that it doesn't change the midsurface. How can I realize that? Because in the picture above, I have hidden the no-material plies. the plies changed their midsurf and the diameter of my model went bigger, which is not allowed.


My other question is, how can I realize the plies to be continuously around the cylinder? I tried it with cyclic pattern grouping, but I am not sure if I used it right.


For further explanations please ask.


Thank you,
