Damping stabilization factors

Recommended Posts

Hello Altair Team,

is there a Setting in optistruct for giving a value of Damping stabilization factor?

I found Damping stabilization factors  in Abaqus, but i wonder, if there is something similar in Hyperworks to use.

Hi Farzin,

 

use NLADAPT>STABILIZ and refer this load collector in the loadstep definition. This is a static stabilization based on viscous damping, where the viscous forces are added to the equilibrium equations.  The large displacement analysis may cause additional difficulty in convergence because of the geometric nonlinearity. STABLIZ parameter in NLADAPT may help.  With this parameter present, OptiStruct will apply some stabilization or damping force on the model. This is especially helpful if some buckling happens under the load.  However, the stabilization effort introduces an artificial error to the simulation, which should be minimized. It is recommended to monitor the ratio of stabilization energy over internal energy in the .nlm output file. A ratio smaller than 1% is ideal.
