  1. Distributed load on edge

    Hi all, Does anyone know how to apply a uniformly distributed load along the edge of several elements? For example, I want to apply a load of 50 N/m along this nodes (see image) Thanks in advance, Alex
  2. Hi , I have large amount of nodal temperature loads applied on the model. Is there any way to visualize the temperature load using contour plots in hypermesh. Also , incase of PLOAD cards applied on the elements. Can we visualize applied pressure in hypermesh using contour plots? Thanks in advance. Girish
  3. What is DTI card image?

    Hi All what is DTI card image ? it is not searchable in help
  4. Hi all, As a part of structural simulation of an helicopter wing, I have calculated all my lift and drag forces and submitted the job for max lift and drag conditions. I observed a max displacement of 5000 mm which in practical case is not possible. Since I gave only Elastic properties, this happened. In the process of understanding the BC of my problem, I found this tutorial "http://www.altairhyperworks.com/training/self_paced/os_linear/content/linear_3/PDF/Exercise 3a.pdf" similar to my problem.. Here they have mentioned a meaning full DESIGN Criteria in the problem. How so I include this to my simulation? and for Static linear, my simulation result file shows results in 25 frames, deviations are minimal in first frame of the results... How do i extract result values from different frames (able to view results only for Min and Max values)
  5. Force Import from FLUX

    Hi, it is possible to export the forces computed in flux and import the values found, node per node in a HM model? i need to create a link between this softwares. Thanks!
  6. Hello, I am solving an optimization problem of an automotive alternator bracket which is circular in shape. The cyclic rib formation (material removal as defined by ucyc) occurs only for a certain load values. It doesn't happen for either higher or lower load values. How is this possible?
  7. User Process- Mating Part

    Sir, What is the significance of the mating part option in user process?
  8. How to apply Point load

    I am a new user. In BasicFEA profile of Hyperworks (University version), I am doing a stress-deformation analysis for the Mosquito Coil Stand. I got model imported via stp (attached) then extracted the midsurface, meshed it. Added surface constraint at the bottom as Fixed. Saved model is attached. Now wish to apply poiint load, equilavant to Coils weight. Not finding how to do that? Any clues? CoilStand_simplified.hm CoilStand_simplified.stp
  9. As you can see in the picture, two forces are acting on single node, on review, I am able to view the magnitude of that force. How to find about the other force? and to which load collector it belongs to, and it magnitude and other info.? Thanks.
  10. Mating part???

    What is the significance of 'Mating Part' option in the 'details' panel of 'properties' dialog box of 'motion' in 'loads' as we see in the expanded tree in user process brouser?
  11. 2D centrifugal force

    Hi... I am a new user of Hyperworks. I want to analyze the centrifugal force and the depending stresses and displacments. My part is a little bit like a CD. I want to this in 2D. My Questions> 1. Which element should i use? 2. How to create the constrains? 3. How the creat a cylindrical coordinatesystem? Best regards Alex
  12. Loads and Constraints on Surfaces

    Hello community, I have a question concerning to apply loads and constraints on 3D surfaces. I have created a solid model from a 2D surface. If I do a 3D multi solid mesh and apply the constraints and the pressure onto the two surfaces (see figure 1), I will get a result. And I can see that every node on the surface is constrained and all elements on the surface are applied with a pressure force. If I create a 2D mesh first and drag the elements along the thickness of the model for a 3D mesh and then apply the constraints and pressure onto the surfaces, I will get no results. And further I can see that not all nodes on the surface are constrained and not all elements on the top surface are applied with a pressure force although I have selected the two surfaces (see figure 2). Why can't I apply the constraints and pressure on surfaces if I create a 3D mesh from a 2D mesh? And why is it possible if I mesh the model with the multi solid subpanel? Thanks in advance.
