Incremental force vs time, stress vs time, strain vs time contour

Recommended Posts

I am using Hypermesh and optistruct 17.2 version. I want to get grid point reaction forces, stresses and strains at intermediate stage so that I can plot force vs time curve, stress vs time curve. I have used GPFORCE, GPSTRESS, GPSTRAIN in global output request. Format type is H3D for all.


Analysis type NLSTAT with LGDISP.


Please check output file attached.

 *** WARNING # 6328

Loadcase 1 contains a GPFORCE output request but NLOUT incremental

output isn't available for that result type. Results will be output

for the last increment exclusively.



I have used NLOUT card and set NINT to 10. I am expecting incremental force vs time, stress vs time, strain vs time contour in Hyperview H3D format. But I am getting contour results only at last time step (i.e. load factor 1 ). Mumps solver is used by default for nonlinear analysis. Same is case for GPSTRESS and GPSTRAIN contour results. Please help me in solving this problem.
