    Multimaterial Optimization

    Hi Prakash, I tried it with the MMAT format and I got some results. But I do not know how to interpret it . I get the result type as 1. material and 2. element density. I know what element density result type is but with the material type, it ranges from a value of 0 to 4. I have considered 6 materials for the optimization. Could you please let me know what it signifies? Thank you Best regards Kate

    I should leave the component property unspecified, assign the properties to all elements and just add all the properties created to the list of properties in dtpl card . This is the procedure right?

    Hi, I tried to use the model checker. It gives a warning of unused property . Is this normal while using more materials for a single component ? Or have I done some mistake again? Also, is there any way of knowing in the post process where which material has been used? Thanks a lot

    Hi, Is it possible to assign different isotropic materials with Psolid property to a single component? No assemblies , just one component. If yes, could you please tell me the process? Thank you
