Output results per each iteration after optimization run is complete.
After successful run of optimization HyperView will show the analysis results directly for the final
iteration. To get the results of every iteration request results from control cards….
Topic Objective: Remesh if optimization runs into element quality error
Sometimes the optimization run aborts due to element quality issue in the middle of the run
usually during shape, topography or free shape optimization. This is because of the element
quality issues. By activating the REMESH option in opti control, remeshing will be activated to
improve element quality if there is an element quality error is encountered. After the remesh, the
optimization will then continue based on the remeshed model.
To activate REMESH option: go to AnalysisOptimizationOpti control click next to next page
within the Opti Control panel and select REMESH. Enter “1”in the value filed to activate
To get structural and non-structural mass
MassCalc option in Tool page will give total mass which includes structural and non-structural mass for component(s). To find out only structural mass for a particular component or set of components when non-structural mass is present,
Here is a work-around:
Topic Objective: Run multiple jobs simultaneously in OptiStruct
Usually the second job will be queued when OptiStruct is running a job. OptiStruct starts second
job after the completion of the first one.
In order to run two or more jobs simultaneously, increase the maximum number of jobs in
parallel using OptiStruct solver manager GUI.
Checking and fixing connectivity in beam models.
It is always necessary to check and fix any connectivity issues in a 1d beam model to avoid unrealistic results generally, avoid excessive deformation, more than 6 rigid body modes etc
To do so
