difining material proproties

Recommended Posts

hello, i'm triying to to find a solution of a probleme i'v acoutred in the last few days, i'v exported from ANSYS a .cdb, file which i opened with hypermesh and while i'm on the Ansys user profiles every thing seems ok, i got all material propreties, geometri propreties, DOF...
but the memont i pass from Ansys user profile to optistruct i lose all my data (no materials defined...), i got only the initial geometry.
so i got three questions if anny one got the answers i'll be realy greatfull.
1) is there a way to keep all my imputs when i change the user profiles from Ansys to optistruct ?.
2) how can i define the following matairial propreties using optistruct?: 
               * thermal expansion
               * permeability

               * resistivity (constant)
               * specific heat

               * thermal conductivity

3) how can i also define a COMBIN14 element type using optistruct?

and thank you everyone

Hi Rabi

when you want to convert from one solver to another recommended method is click on 

Tools > convert >  Ansys > To Optistruct
