Abaqus to optistruct Conversion

Recommended Posts

Hallo,

 

i want to convert an abaqus modell to an optistruct modell via the hypermesh convert makro. With most of the entities it works fine, but with some not.

 

For example the section properties especially the beam section, connector section and solid section cards are not supported in conversion.

 

The abaqus modell was build up in ansa and now I want to do a topology optimization in hypermesh optistruct.

 

How can I handle this problem? Are there any configuration files for those or any other not supported cards and where can I find them?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @mtrier

 

I am assuming that you are converting using Tools Menu>> Convert. Let  us know what type of beam section is not converting. 

 

Not all entities are supported for conversion from one solver format to OptiStruct. Standard Abaqus beam sections may not support or convert to standard OptiStruct beam.

 

In this case you need to create beam sections and other unsupported entities for solving on OptiStruct.

First of all, thank you for your advice.

 

I am using the tool convert. I can complete the model myself, but I am not an expert and I want to save time. So there are no separate tcl-Scripts or configuration files for that?
