LS DYNA Pre-Post Seismic Isolator Geometry Problem

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I am trying to model elstomeric seismic isolator LS-PrePost. I used 'MAT_SEISMIC_ISOLATOR', 'ELEMENT_BEAM', 'SECTION_BEAM' keywords to create it. As it is described in LS Dyna manual, I chose element formulation option 6 which is discrete beam. My problem is not having control on discrete beam cross section size. I appreciate if someone helps me to solve this problem. Thank you.

Hi,

We support only for Altair suites. This issue is typically another solver related and I recommend you to get in touch with the Dyna support team.

You can go through market leading Altair's explicit solver, RADIOSS which can simulate high end non linear simulations. More details are available at http://www.altairhyperworks.in/product/RADIOSS

You can learn RADIOSS at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxM52wP3_ew&list=PLQ7KUGFuVz4u5y3SvIEIU07427-gATaG6 which is a webinar series.
