Need help in Composite Post-processing Operations

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Having issue with doing post-processing op of a composite part in HV.

 

Created this component in HM. The zero degrees plies (or Material Orientation direction is along +Z axis). The set up is pretty simple. Fixed on one side and an axial load on the other side. The solver I used is MSC Nastran and PCOMPG cards were used to define laminate.

The cross-section of the component showing the laminate.

Selected "Composite" option during the initial setup where I point out to model & results file.

 

The option Global System (projection: None) is greyed out. Was under the impression that I could select "Projection Active" (or something similar) and use the Global Z direction to tell HV to transform Ply 1 XX results. This is how I usually post-process in Patran.

 

Next I created a user defined coord system and had HV point it out to transform (System id =1). But still I am not getting any output. What am I doing wrong?

I also want to add that I am able to obtain any deformation pattern in Hyperview. Although HV shows the Contour values of Deformation in the model, somehow it is not showing the deformed shape. Supposed to have a slight bend as shown below in MSC Patran.

Hi Prakash,

Yes, I am getting results in Analysis System.

What does this DEFORM function do in Hypermesh? I was not able to find any references in Hypermesh Documentation. If I check the Deform check box, I am supposed to select a Load Collector. Should this be checked to obtain Deformation shape?

Also, in Hyperview I created a Projection Rule where the Global Primary Axis points to or transformed to Z direction as shown below:

Still no joy in getting Ply results displayed

Hi,

Did not want to start another thread but I dunno why I am not able to plot deformation shape in Hyperview. I even made a very simple Test case of a 2D Isotropic plate subjected to axial load. But I just not able to obtain the deformation shape on HV.

 

I am attaching the bdf & op2 files. I want to get some resolution on this soon. Please help.

Test.bdf

test.op2

Hi Prakash,

I was just about to post that I think HV was showing the deformed shape but I had to adjust the scale of it. I will investigate the same on other models including the composite one and report back.

 

In the mean time, I would appreciate if you could do give a glance on why Stress Global Projection for individual plies are not working.

 

Thanks for your reply. Appreciate the continued support on this forum.

^^What exactly does the above mean? I do load both files IIRC. I point out to bdf file & op2 files and then to "Composite" when I first start HV. Unless that has to be repeated else where...I would say that I am doing that already. I am currently away from computer. Will try to post pictures later.

Hi Prakash,

I did a quick check per your suggestion using Advanced template instead of Composite and it seems to work. I forgot to do a check on transformation of results for a User Defined Coord Sys, but I'll take it that works as well while using Advanced template.

 

Thanks for your support and resolution. Appreciate it a lot.
