Tips and Tricks #1407: OptiStruct – CGAP Force Output Includes Preload
CGAP Force Output Includes Preload
• Preload force ‘F0’ is included in the CGAP element force output.
• Preload force ‘F0’ is supported for Nonlinear static analysis (SMDISP/LGDISP), and ignored in linear analysis.
• The output is available in *.h3d and/or *.op2. & with OPTI forces are written to a .force file.
• With NLOUT request, incremental CGAP force output is available in *.h3d and .force file.
• Currently ‘on the fly’ CGAP force output in *.impl.h3d file is not available.
