Radioss Model Error

Recommended Posts

Hi Abhinav,

For this objective please try this modelling approach:

>. Create a rigid wall in the bottom of the solid. Please don't forget to add the slave nodes of the solid component.

>. In the top create a surface, make it rigid and apply the imposed velocity on the master node of the rigid body.

 

We have a similar tutorial which you can access at https://altairuniversity.com/learning-library/modeling-and-analysis-of-honeycomb-impact-attenuator/

Hello George,

I did exactly the way you said. However I am having intersection errror, which I am not able to fix. Could you check it once Please.

I have used automatic fixing tool, and then tried manually.

 

Thanks.

 

With Regards

One more question even If I do it with face skin on top surface , shouldnt it function?

If I am not mistaken I wouldnt be needing contact definition as well since the face is generated out of solid model.

 

I tried with face skin  as well but getting 1 error about kinematic condition.

Hi,

I have made some modifications in your model and you can try this approach.

There were also some unit consistency issues in your model for the material parameters and so I changed the values. Recheck the material values and correct them accordingly.

Hello George,

thanks for your correction.

I see that you have put rigid walls on all the sides of the cube. I wished to have the reaction force on the bottom of the cube. Slo if I remove the other rigid wall and leave it just at bottom with outblock corresponding to rigid wall, would it give the results required?

Apart from that I wish to ask why you made rigid walls on all the sides of the block? any particular reason for that? <elements move together?>

Hello George,

 

I have to model the honeycomb structure and an impactor to find out the energy absorbed. Unfortunately I am getting an error 156. I saw in one of your posts that this error occur due to the material curves. Could you check my model, if it is okay. I dont have all the values required by material card 28 like in direction 11 & 22 , and G12. WOuld it be possible to run the simulation without these curves.

 

Looking forward to your reply.

 

Thanks.

 

With Regards

Hi,

The error is causing because of the curve behavior you have defined (yield stress strain curve). If you review the curve you can see that 4th absicca is less than the 3rd one and similarly check for other values also. This is not an intended behavior for stress-strain curve, so correct these values in the function.

You can only create a good simulation with correct and authentic material values. Any illogical or unclear material data will result in wrong results and weird behavior.

We have a honeycomb crashbox tutorial available at https://altairuniversity.com/learning-library/modeling-and-analysis-of-honeycomb-impact-attenuator/ , I recommend you to got through this especially the material data.

Hello George,

thanks for your advise and correction. I have corrected it. I was following the tutorial which you also mentioned . Although during the run, it shows no error however in results there is no movement of the top surface plate. Could you please tell me , what mistake I have done?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

With Regards

Abhinav

Apart from that I wish to know what could be posssible failure shear strain values, that could be given in MAT 28 law.
