  1. Optimisation - Re-Analysis

    Dear all, Is there a way to automatically run OSSmooth and re-analysis with optistruct. Basically up to now we are running an optimisation then going to hypermesh, running OSSmooth, and re-running optistruct to see what deflection we get with the optimised shape.\ Can we set that at once (maybe as a batch process) so we don't have to do the whole thing, and get optimisation + Re-analysis at once? Many thanks.
  2. Attached is a Hypermesh deck of a structure whose mass I’m trying to minimize. The structure has a square shaped core covered on the top and bottom by composite facesheets. Shell elements have been used for modeling. The size of the square and the thickness of its wall determine the buckling characteristics of the facesheets. I’ve modeled using a square of side 6mm and its wall thickness is 1.5 mm (shown in the snapshot below). By varying the size of this square and changing the wall thickness, I’m looking to minimse the mass, the constraint being that the buckling factor must always be greater than 1. Could you please help me achieve my objective? Thanks, Kushal Agarwal. square_foam_opti.hm

  6. optimisation of knuckle

    I am not able to decide what design responses I need to take? Should I take displacement or stresses? I am having problem in deciding upper and lower bound of those responses.
  7. Beam Optimisation using Hyperstudy

    Hello, I am trying to utilize hyperstudy to optimize a bespoke shell section Beam. Essentially the beam is a hollow I-section but we would like to use hyperstudy to parameterize the thickness. Is this possible? The solver we are using is Optistruct.
  8. Hello, I have a laminate with 3 plies. I want to optimise the orientation of these plies such that the deflection of the laminate is minimum under the applied load. I can only perform composite shuffle, but I'm not able to optimise the ply angles. Please advice as to how to proceed to solve this issue Thanks, Kushal.
  9. Attached are 2 Hypermesh models. The Aim is to minimize mass. I have used 2 composite plies to model the structure. 2 PCOMPG properties have been assigned to the plies respectively. Only 1 out of these 2 plies needs to be optimized topographically to obtain stiffener patterns. The other ply must continue to remain in its original shape In the “volume_feasible.hm” file , I have minimized volume as the objective. The optimization run gives a feasible design. However, when I check the results, there is no change in the shape of the ply and no bead patterns are obtained. Next, I changed the objective to minimize mass just to see if I get the desired result. Again, I obtain a feasible design but there is no change in the shape of the ply and no bead patterns are obtained. In this model, no contact has been defined between the plies. In the “stick_contact.hm” file, I’ve defined a stick contact between the two plies and run the optimization. Here again, I obtain a feasible design but there are no bead patterns obtained in the result. if anyone has tried a similar problem before please help me out. stick_contact.hm volume_feasible.hm
  10. Optimisation of a model

    Submitted by Enric on Wed, 05/25/2011 - 15:11 I had a question regarding a model which I am trying to create: please note I am quite new to Vissim. I am trying to model the level of a solute in the blood using a mass-transfer model. The model is defined by a number of compartments, with mass flow occurring between them and a number of integration functions, plus "unknown" constants which define the rates of mass flows between compartments. To create the model I have guessed these “unknown” constants and now the model is up and running. What I want to do is to “optimise” these constants to produce a model where the blood level most closely matches real, measured, values. Please could you give me some guidance on this. I have two initial questions: Obviously there a variable called “time” which ticks upwards as the model progresses. How can I access this variable to display another variable at a set time point (to compare to my actual values). ie. An operator which would allow the following function: WHEN time=x1 seconds, THEN display variable X. When time=x2 seconds, THEN display variable X. If I could do this, then I could perform the most simple form of optimisation by comparing variables visually ! In addition, being able to do this would give me a set of readings at set time points which I could use for optimisation. In my relatively simple model, which produces in the end a single output (solute concentration), how can I devise a system that optimises the solute concentration curve against actual measured levels that I have at discrete time points ? I am not sure if I should be using the Cost function here. Any guidance on this would be appreciated- and thanks. I'm not after someone doing the model for me, its more that I'm still getting to grips with what functions are available for this.
  11. Hello, as suggested in another thread in this Forum, i tried the usage of dresp3-Card. What i want to do: - let excel calculate the tresca-stress (Input: max principle, min principle, output: stress (=difference between both input variables). - get the tresca stress back and use it for an "minmax-" or "min-objective" in optimisation What i wrote until today: LOADLIB DRESP3 GR01 tresca.xlsx $solid DRESP1 1 MAX_PR1 STRESS PSOLID SMAP DRESP1 1 MAX_PR3 STRESS PSOLID SMIP DRESP3 20 TRESCA GR01 MYFUNC 1 2 + DRESP1 1 2 + CELLIN C2 C3 + CELOUT D1 I also use a small excel-file, which calculates the difference beween "cell C2" and "cell C3" in "cell D1". Questions: - would it work like that ? (I can't test it at the moment) - What do I get with the DRESP1 / DRESP3 ? When using DRESP1 with "ELEM" and enter an element-ID, it would give ONE value to the excel-file, which seems to be pretty clear. But when I use PSOLID as the PTYPE, there might be hundrets or thousands of values (here: principal stresses). At that point I do not understand my own programmed code.. Maybe someone can help? I read the Tutorial OS-4095 and also a lot of manual pages. Thanks a lot
  12. OptiStruct Lattice Optimisation

    Hi, I was using the lattice optimisation tutorial in order to complete a lattice optimisation on my own component and it completed the first step no problem, producing the "_lattice.fem" file. However, when I then ran that through OptiStruct, I got the following error: *** ERROR # 1814 *** MASSFRAC response on DRESP1 card 2 is not applied to a topology or free-size domain. Please could you advise on what I should do? Kind Regards, Iain

  16. Defining constraint

    Hello Group I wanted to know whether its is possible to define output as a constraint in optimisation. I am validating my modell with frequency response test I want to vary values of Material properties like Emodulus, G modulus so that at certain frequencies Frequency Response Function FRF (velocity) is say (+\- 10 % ) of the FRF calculated by test. eg Vary values of E = 1000 mpa to 2000 mpa G= 200 mpa to 400 mpa so that at node 256 Frq frf (test) frf(simulation) 5hz 0.256 (+/- 0.01) of 0.256 10hz 0.586 (+- 0.01) of 0.586 15 hz 1.457 (+- 0.01) of 1.457 etc Is it possible to define constraint this way a suggestion or example tutorial would be quit helpful Thanks and Regards Pratik
