  4. The MAC version of the student edition has been discontinued, If MAC is the only available machine, we suggest you install windows in parallel using boot camp, and use the windows version of the software. Apple support has all the details on this, https://www.apple.com/in/support/bootcamp/
  5. license error

    The software requires a license file to function, please login to your Altair Store account to download the license file. You should find the license file attached to the email from the system after you request your license file http://studentedition.altair.com/ After downloading the license file, rename it to altair_lic.dat and place the same in the <installation directory>/security folder If you have already done the above and still face the error, let us know and we will troubleshoot accordingly.
  6. The following are some commonly used/suggested optimization problem formulations: 1. Minimize (weighted/total/regional) compliance With constrained (total/regional) volume/mass fraction 2. Minimize (total/regional) volume/mass fraction With constrained displacements 3. Maximize (weighted) frequency With constrained (total/regional) volume/mass fraction 4. Minimize (total/regional) volume/mass fraction With constrained frequencies 5. Minimize combined compliance and frequencies With constrained (total/regional) volume/mass fraction 6. Minimize (total/regional) volume/mass fraction With stress constraints
  7. Cannot show label title on buttons on linux?

    Yes, Ubuntu is not a supported OS, in any case you can try going to the working directory (by typing in pwd in the command window) and delete the settings files namely hmmenu.set, hmsettings.tcl, command.cmf and then try the same procedure,
  8. error when executing Help installation guide

    It is important to first try deleting the downloaded executable file and downloading it again from the site. To make sure the file is not damaged on download, run an md5 checksum on the downloaded file (just google md5 checksum) and make sure the checksum result matches the one given in the site where the files are downloaded from, Double click / run the Winmd5 checksum executable (download win md5 a freeware from the internet, please note we cannot be responsible for external content and info) Select the executable by clicking on the browse button or drag and drop the file into the window

  12. The Student Edition 12.0 is designed for 64 bit Operating System (windows specifically) 64-bit refers to the size of the address space. When you compile a 32-bit program, the code is turned into assembly language and each instruction has an address that is 32-bits long in memory. Conversely a 64-bit program uses a 64-bit address. The real advantage is that any given program can access a lot more memory in a 64-bit system. Also, 64-bit processors are instruction set compatible with 32-bit (on the same instruction set). That is, a 64-bit processor should have no issue running a 32-bit program. In the case of IA-32 and x86_64, this is handled by a library in the OS that truncates the memory addresses in a predictable way. The reason you can’t run 64-bit program on a 32-bit OS (even on 64-bit hardware) is because the OS is only concerned with half the memory address, and it gets instructions that don’t make sense to it.

    The Ethernet ID is the ID of your machine which is exactly 12 hexadecimal numbers. For example D4WRF478F398 Run ipconfig/all in command window and check for physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection: The listed physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection should be used to generate the license file, That means if the address provided as above does not match the one in the license file, please request for the license file again with the correct Ethernet ID. You can check your computer’s Ethernet address, by using the almutil -hostid application from the Start > Altair > Tools > Admin tools Menu and compare it with the result in the command window, Alternatively run getmac in command window to find out available Ethernet addresses to cross check as well,

    Use windows folder options > unhide known extensions, to make sure the file is named altair_lic.dat and not altair_lic.dat.dat, You need to confirm if the Ethernet address in the license file is the correct one and matches the one in your machine. When you open the license file in a text editor you will see an Ethernet address there in a line that says "ETHERNET = The Ethernet ID is the ID of your machine which is exactly 12 hexadecimal numbers.

  24. how to apply displacements as BCs?

    Hello, I am simulating a three point bending test, and want to apply a displacement of 20 milimeters in the z direction to two nodes in the probe's central line as initial condition. The goal is to check the force needed to obtain such strain. I have tried using SPC and SPCD cards, but all I obtain is an undeformed shape after the simulation. When I use an arbitrary force instead of a displacement, the results come as expected, though. I uploaded the .hm file with BCs and forces and the .hm file with displacement. Thank you in advance Gustavo Blazek
