  1. Importing Systems Include File

    Hi, i am working in Hypermesh with Abaqus Standard 3D Template. I try to import a Input file with a reference to a include file with coordinate systems. Incule File looks like: **HMNAME SYSTEMCOL Orient1, 1, 3 *ORIENTATION, NAME = Orient1, DEFINITION = NODES, SYSTEM = RECTANGULAR 3, 1, 2 3,-45.0 I get the following warning: Warning: *ORIENTATION card with DEFINITION= OFFSET TO NODES is not supported in Hypermesh-ABAQUS Resolution: This card would not have read in correctly into Hypermesh. My Question: How can I change the Orientation defintion to get it work in Hypermesh without loosing information about the systems? Thank you.
  2. Hi all, I have some problems when dealing with coordinate system in hypermesh. 1. How to copy a coordinate system to many nodes without direction change? 2. How to build a new coordinate system at a node with given angle to global system? 3. Besides selecting three nodes to build a system, is there any other method to create a system with given directions? Thank you Roy
  3. Hello, I tried a quick search but did not find my answer; sorry if it is trivial but it is causing me a hard time! I created node reference systems in Hypermesh. I solve my non linear problem with Radioss and my coordinate defining nodes move during the simulation (hence my coordinate systems *should* follow them). My qyestion is: how can I make my systems visible in Hyperview 2017 so that I can see how they moves and behaves in time during the simulation? Thanks
  4. What's the difference between the two methods to create a local system? In the system panel, there exists two methods: one is create by axis direction, the other is create by node reference. I want to know the difference. Thank you.
  5. Hello Everyone ! I would like to set up a problem on Hypermesh which include around a hundred load cases (in linear static). To automate it, I found a TCL which "allows a simple template to be created to define the loadcases; useful for creating large numbers of static loadcases very quickly and easily" (link) Thanks to a little VBA, I've just succeed in transforming my Excel data base into a readable txt file for this TCL script. And it works. But my problem is this TCL script only applies my forces (and SPC) on the global system. Is there a solution, and how can modify the TCL script so that it can apply my load cases on a specific local system (expressed into the .txt for each load cases) ? If someone can help me to takle this problem, I will be sooo grateful (Because I've never learnt how to program in TCL) Thanks in advance, Best regards, Hervé Archives.zip
  6. Hi all, I want to do a drop simulation, but the direction of the rigid wall is not parallel to the global axis direction. So I think a new system with one plane parallel to the rigid wall should be defined. I think first I should define a system parallel to global system, then rotate the new system to the target direction. The system panel was used to define the system, however I found the system was a moving system, so how to define a fix system in HyperMesh? Best Wishes Roy

  8. Simple spring-mass system

    Hello, I´m new at HyperMesh and I´d like to know how can I simulate a very simple spring-mass system in HyperMesh to obtain the modal frequency of it. Can somebody help me? Which elements, property and type of analysis should I use? Thanks in advance.
  9. I am creating a model using thin shell surfaces for a ship-type structure where the side slopes outwards from the bottom. I would like to be able to cut the side stiffeners on a plane normal to the sloping side, not parallel to the global axes. I have created an axis system with the Z axis normal to the side, but use of this system seems to be very inconsistent in Hypermesh v13. I can create a surface by extruding a line in the local Z direction, but I can't create a line by extruding a node. I can't create nodes using coordinates along the local system. I can't break a surface on any plane except one of the global planes. I have done what I want by creating a vector then a line then a surface and breaking self-intersecting surfaces, but it is very long-winded. It would be so much easier if I could break the surface using local planes at a given base node! Any chance of Hypermesh adding a local system option to the edit - surface - plane form?
  10. Greetings, I'm trying to read data from a node path that I've selected, using the way shown here http://www.altairhyperworks.com/pdfs/tips/1068.pdf I can see the "resolved in" option but I'm unable to change it to my cylindrical local coordinate system. Modeled in hypermesh and solved in abaqus, in Hypermesh I assigned my local csys to all nodes, still no luck. I'll be grateful if someone can help me with this. Thanks in advance.
  11. Plot system energy

    I am running an impact simulation and i want to plot the energy of the system and its components (strain, translational kinetic, rotational kinetic, hourglass, etc). I am using radioss block as the solver. So far i have managed to find how to do it for individual elements but not for parts or globally (system). My question is the following. Do i need to specify some kind of output request for that cause or is it done automatically and available somewhere in Hyperview? To get a sense of what i want to plot i am attaching an image from the pipe impact tutorial. The plot on the bottom of the image is what i want to have. (http://www.altairhyperworks.com/hwhelp/Altair/hw12.0/help/hwsolvers/rd3520.htm) Thanks for your time.
