Solving - Thermal Case study - Double Layers

Recommended Posts

Hi All 


Trying to run an Optistruct analysis to see how two layers of different materials will displace when experiencing a thermal load. In my case I have chosen points along a lattic where the temperature would be 80degC. But when running my model in Optistruct and in trying to view the results, the model cannot show a viable solution or a solution that makes sense, in fact, I have not setup the pre processing properly (it seems) which has lead to a model with massive deformation. Also I am unable to view the contours.


The attached picture shows circled areas (red) where I have made equivalence nodes, there is an expected connection at these points (not defined).


Hoping that anyone could give advice or guidance!

Hi @pmanock


Sorry I could not able to get back on this.


Thank you for the update. I would be nice if you post the solution for co-users :)
