Visualize resultant force vector of a node

Recommended Posts

I have a moving rigid body and 3 concentrated loads (one each for x,y,z) on its master node. Besides, I have an output block for REACX, REACY and REACZ for this node and I'm able to plot the forces for that node in Hypergraph. However, what I'd like to do is visualizing the resultant force vector in Hyperview, as an arrow/vector in real time during the movement, to determine whether the resultant points in the desired direction. Is there a way to do this?

I use Hypermesh & Radioss.

Hi rea2

 

You can check this option in Hyperview

Select vector option and set the result type to forces.

select the rigid body component and click apply. This will show the resultant vector value and direction in real time.

Thank you so much! That's what I also found, but I only have displacement as a possible result type, no contact forces. I also exported Von Mises, Pressure and Energy as a result type, but they are not available there (probably since they are not vectors?). How do I get contact forces? I don't find it as an option in the ENG_ANIM_ELEM card.

Hi rea2

 

Go to Analysis > control cards > click next and select ENG_ANIM_VECT

select ENG_ANIM_VECT and then tick on CONT for contact forces.

Thank you! I was able export the forces but couldn't visualize the vector on the master node yet. Still trying - but thank you for your help!

Hi 

 

If possible please share the .h3D file. i will also have a try
