Unable to run Optimization

Recommended Posts

I am new to Inspire,I just downloaded the Trial version yesterday.I set up an simple model with some load cases and tried to optimize it for stiffness.

I get the message that "unable to run"Optimization error.

I checked the Progress log file.As shown below.

Can you please tell me what mistake am I doing.I just created a non design space as a cylindrical holes in the model with a boss.I dont understand where is the contact Issue.I checked using the contacts and every non design space is shown as blue

I am now able to run the Simulation and it turns green showing completed Status.

But I am unable to view the results,it Shows a message that Insufficient loads or realstic loads are not applied.

Can you please help me run this model.

I want to minimize the mass,maximize frequencies with Stamping constraint and casting constraint

Using Aluminium and then using Steel

Hi Rahul,


That's an impressive model! A few things I would suggest:

1. Delete all parts inside the model Browser which are not needed

2. Run the optimization for "max. stiffness" first - to find out what is an achievable SF with the "min. feature" thickness you are using

3. Take this info back into account for the "min. mass" optimization

Hi Felix,

Thanks a lot for your quick Support.

Can you please share the st mod file to me that you ran with the right way to put the stamping conditions.

And I dont understand how to choose the Minimum thickness.The model you see is actually that of a Rear Axle for a car(design space)

I actually have 10 more load cases that I Need to introduce.So if I get this one running I can work further.Struck here for 1 day.
