Dynamic Loads Topology Optimisation in Optistruct

Recommended Posts

Hi,  

The problem consists of a connecting rod submitted to axial loads which define the phases of admission (traction) and combustion (compression). 

I am trying to run the following optimization:      

  • 2 load steps :        
    • Traction        
    • Compression    
  • 2 responses :        
    • Volume        
    • Compliance    
  • 1 constraint :        
    • 60% Volume    
  • 1 objective :        
    • Minimize compliance  

 

I managed to run a direct transient analysis for the two separate load cases. 

I tried running a topology optimization for one of the load cases but an error occured with the following message:  

 

*** ERROR # 557 ***  DRESP1 2 is not referenced from within a static or an MBD SUBCASE. 

This type of response must be specified from within a static or an MBD  SUBCASE. 

This error occurs in DESOBJ 2. 

 

I would like to know:     

  1. How can I create alternating load steps to simulate the traction and compression phases   
  2. If it is possible to run an optimization with these dynamic loads 

 

Thank you !

Hi @Intan

 

What type of analysis is it?

 

Is it possible to share the model file?

One way is converting the time domain to frequency domain and run FRF analysis with optimization.

 

You can refer to ESLM for Nonlinear Response Optimization on OptiStruct help. Maybe you can try this approach.
