  1. Hi Suresh, Coukd you please share me your officially email I’d. We can connect through WebEx and take this forward Thanks, Vikas
  2. Hi Suresh, If you want to carry out a drop test, I would suggest to use RADIOSS which is based on Explicit techniques. In Radioss you can apply initial veloctiy through /INVEL card which is supported through HM Thanks, Vikas
  3. Hi Suresh, What is the solution sequence you are trying to solve? Thanks Vikas
  4. Hi, Which version of OptiStruct are you using? could you please attach the .out file? Thanks, Vikas
  5. Hi Ruchik, Hope you are doing great. Yes, you can solve the LC1 with Restart files written to this subcase. You can then use these Restart files to run Job 1 to Job 10 by solving for only Load Case 2 in each Job. Thanks Vikas

    Hi Girish, Please send your official email I’d to with which you have registered in Altair connect to support@india.altair.com. We shall approve the same Thanks, Vikas
  8. Hi Vinit, 1. You can OFFSET the shell thickness on the PSHELL card. Please take a look at Z1, Z2 and ZOFF field on the PSHELL card. 2. Click on the below icon to render 1D beam elements with 3D representation Thanks Vikas
  9. linear interpolation

    Hi Rossay, Could you please increase the search distance on the pressure panel and check if that helps! Thanks Vikas
  10. Hi Nachiket, Generally RBE2 add stiffness to the structure it is connected to but not the RBE3's The FE joints available in OS currently support only Nonlinear Quasi-Static (NLSTAT) load cases. It is not supported for Modes / FRF yet. Attached is a sample deck to model FE joints in OS Hope this helps! Thanks, Vikas slider_crank_modes.fem
  11. Hi Nachiket, OS support FE joints starting from v2017 for Nonlinear load steps. Could you please let us know which type of joint are you interested in? Thanks Vikas

  14. Hi Sundaram, This particular forum is for OptiStruct Solver and we will be glad to help you out should you have any questions regarding OptiStruct. It is pretty simple in OptiStruct to define a pre-tension section and their is no need to define an extra node to apply the pre-tension load. HyperMesh provides a easy to use pre-tension Utility to define pre-tension section and apply force/displacement on the section itself. Let us know if you need any help or procedure wrt OptiStruct Solver Thanks Vikas
  15. Hi Harmeek, I don't see any thumb rule for calculating the modes. I believe it all depends on how dense your matrices are in decoupling the matrices and solving the equation directly. OptiStruct do not have a limitation on the performance for FRF step to be maximum at 4 cores. In fact, you can use Domain Decomposition Method (DDM) for FRF step and run the job with multiple cores to get better performance. Please give a try with DDM Thanks Vikas
