    Hi Nithish, This error shows that the dependent DOF has been selected in the independent DOF too. Delete the dependent DOF from the independent DOF list and run the analysis. UseTools-> check elems->1-D rigid loops and dependency (check including independent nodes). This will help to figure the 1-D elements that share a node (dependent or independent)are considered to fail the check.

    Hi Richard, For the part sets created, create configurations and group part sets in the configurations and enable the configuration. Then all of the parts, part assemblies, components, and part sets not associated with that configuration become inactive. A tutorial on the same is available in Help Menu and the same is attached for reference. HM-3440.pdf

    If your requirement is to define stiffness in more than one direction. 1. By creating as many CELAS elements as the desired number of directional stiffness 2. By simply creating CBUSH elements where you can define 6 directional stiffness The model with CBUSH should be simpler and work properly.

    Hi, regarding to OS reference guide: - Dof (C1, C2) : dof in disp coordinate system (CD field of GRID) normally CD=0 so dof3 means stiffness follows z-direction of basic coord system to set celas follows an optional direction, create a system and assign it as "disp system" of nodes of celas

    The languages used by Sl are Javascript and Python. After starting the recording process, you are asked which language you want to use. While recording the process, please select groups of entities so that you can re-run the process on other models using the same groups (and body) names.

    A revolute joint is a one-degree-of-freedom kinematic pair used in mechanisms. Revolute joints provide single-axis rotation function used in many places such as door hinges, folding mechanisms, and other uni-axial rotation devices.

    Rithvik, it is easy to change these parameters just follow the steps and refer attached images(images are example to explain, you can do similar process with your model) go to Project browser> system of suspension > Data Sets > Vehicle Input parameters. And Enter your calculated or measured values.

    Hi, Internal energy is the energy absorbed by the elements during deformation. This is also referred to as strain energy. Hourglass energy is the energy associated with the hourglass mode of element where the element stiffness become zero and tries to come out of simulation. In such scenarios, a force is applied to that particular element to displacement and the work done by that force gives the hourglass energy. This should be not more than 10-15 % of the total energy. This is purely based on shell element formulation. Like if you go to property and edit it you will see, IShell which defines the element formulation. More details for the same is also given in help.

    Hello Ankit, For Baja-Supra event we have separate Templates. There are specific Vehicle (Formula one and ATV-baja) so we have given flexibility to change specific parameters based on student's requirements, but from assembly wizard you can simulate many combinations. So you have to edit manually into points,body and Joints values to edit specific parameters.

    Dear bobo44 In the image you attached the top and bottom cubes appear to be orange which is the colour of PEC in FEKO. If these cubes have their Regions set to be a dielectric with the permittivity of free space, then please ensure that the bounding Faces are set to be "Dielectric boundary" and not PEC. Additionally, if you only have dielectric layers in your model, you might consider using the (2D infinite) "planar multilayer substrate" option for modeling this. Regards, Johan H

    The RBE2 element defines a rigid body with independent degrees-of-freedom that are specified at a single grid point and with dependent degrees-of-freedom that are specified at an arbitrary number of grid points. The first grid listed on the RBE2 is the independent grid point and all 6 degrees of freedom are used. The CM field is used to specify the components of the following dependent grids. For RBE2 the constraint DOF’s will be transferred from independent node(Master) to dependent node/s (Slave).

    Hello Bobo, I think there is a misunderstanding with respect to what you want to calculate vs. what you are requesting from FEKO. The TR (transmission reflection) coefficients are for calculating reflections from surfaces. That means that you either need to define a 2D periodic structure (PBC) or have an infinite ground definition in your model. What you are trying to calculate is probably monostatic or bistatic RCS, correct? To calculate that, you simply need a plane wave source and a far field request. If you are interested in the scattered near field, you can add near field requests to your model [it is possible to calculate either the total field (default) or just the scattered part]. I hope this helps!

    Hello Bobo, the error that you should be seeing is: Reflection/transmission can only be computed for 2D periodic boundaries or planar Green's function This is a limitation on the Reflection/transmission request: either you must use periodic boundary conditions or the planar Green's function. However, it is does not support general 3D structures without either of these 2 options. Regards, Peter

    Hi, Yes if the model barrier is rigid, it will have zero internal energy as deformation is not possible. Contact energy is not a physical energy of the system, it is the basically the energy spent by enabling a contact force to avoid penetration. Contact energy = contact force*distance moved to avoid penetration. This should be minimal and can be around 0-5 % of total energy. Any springs also modelled in simulation, if yes how the spring energy varies? Also is the internal energy became equal to the input energy or it is less?

    Yes, ofcourse Linear Static does not take into account the contact - it is nonlinear, generally all nonlinearity affects including: - material nonlinearity: stress is above yield point - geometric nonlinearity: stiffness matrix sensitive with geometry deformation - boundary nonlinearity: contact And also "static" means no dynamic affect can be captured, so every loads must be applied slowly
