Run OptiStruct Externally (Matlab)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'd like to use Matlab to control OptiStruct -- change design variables and run the analysis. My intent is to use numerical methods scripts I've written in Matlab and loop back and forth between Matlab and OptiStruct. The process would run as follows:


1. Matlab -- numerical methods algorithm takes in FEA results, outputs design variables

2. Optistruct -- takes in design variables, runs FEA and outputs results (.out file)

3. Repeat


Can anyone help me run OptiStruct from Matlab? More generally, does anyone have experience running OptiStruct externally?


Thank you in advance for any help!
