Hello experts,


I am hypermesh_optistruct user.

i have heard about a new feature in OptiStruct 2018 named "initial stress".

i have looked at some papers from Altair but all the information is about BULK-DATA in OptiStruct.


There is nothing about "how to assign initial stress in HyperMesh interfaces"
Can somebody help me?

Appreciate any help.
Thank you verymuch!

Currently this is supported via bulk unsupported card for HyperMesh Desktop 2017.3.PFA deck for same.



Thank for your answer,

I already found the example file but it seem very difficult for my case.


The case i want to perform is make a nonlinear-quasi-static analysis on OptiStruct with the initial stress from HyperForm result.

Do you have any suggestion or tutorial for my problem?
