Initial strain from moldflow (nastran output)

Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I would like to run a linear static load in optistruct solver, by using strain output from Moldflow analysis.

Initial strain is available in following form (Nastran format);

Material tipe is MAT8.

I can't find a way to write initial strain or stress state to optistruct input.

 

Regards.

HI,

 

Initial Strain with OptiStruct is still under development. 

 

But, I think you can do that using RADIOSS using INI/SHELL/STRA_F or INI/BRICK/STRA_F.
