Mesh Control causing errors... ie. Memory access violation and some with Storage Manager.

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

When i edit number of nodes on edge by Mesh Control (Advanced simulation module) very often i have an errors (mostly first):

1. Internal error: memory access violation 

2. Attempt to free already free memory in Storage Manager

3. Invalid trailer found in Storage Manager block 

 

Errors 1 and 2 i get on my workstation, but I've tried the same .fem file on my laptop with the same version of NX and i get error 3.

 

Both machines have NX 9.0.3.4, windows 7 x64. Workstation have 64GB RAM, laptop 8GB RAM. I don't know what informations you need.

 

From .log file the last information is:

bla bla bla...and:

Re: Mesh Control causing errors... ie. Memory access violation and some with Storage Manager.

Hello encholex,

 

I am also just guessing, but maybe you can try the following:

 

Did you insert a value for the the memory in the Solver Parameters dialogue, which should be used from NX? If no, try to set a value e.g. 4GB. If yes, try to keep the entry empty.

If you set a value above 7.999999GB make sure that you are using the correct solver executable. That means, that you need to reference at the Sover Parameters under Solver Executable in User Specified to the nastran64L.exe as shown in the picture below.

 

 

 Hopefully this will help you.

 

Regards,

 

Georg

Re: Mesh Control causing errors... ie. Memory access violation and some with Storage Manager.

Hello again,

 

Thank You for response and for the interest my problem.

Firstly i must add, that a lot of my meshes from NX9 is for the other FEA software (with more nonlinear capabilities - rubber). I do that because NX have great environment for meshing than FEA software that I use. I create mesh much faster and much exact in places where i expect more strains.

So when I finish modelling, I switch to Advanced simulation and choose New FEM (no New Fem and Simulation), choose Nastran Solver (for correct format of elements) and i only create FEM and export to .dat file. 

 

Option You are talking about is available in Simulation module when I edit Solution, but for You I create .sim file and edit that otion Smiley Happy  

Unfortunate that option not helps. After few edit number of nodes on several edges i received Storage manager type error Smiley Happy

Re: Mesh Control causing errors... ie. Memory access violation and some with Storage Manager.

Encholex,

 

That is some very bad software behavior you're showing in the NX LOG file. Development needs to investigate your model and steps to reproduce the problem. I suggest that you contact GTAC and open a call with them to initiate the investigation process.

Hello again,

 

Thanks to all for trying to help me. Errors are showing up when i work on part couple of minutes and editing the same edges few times with update mapped mesh on faces adjacent to this edges.

Anytime when i get errors i'll save my work and restart NX. After that, for next few operations i have quiet Smiley Happy  sometimes i have to do that operations few times to finish my mesh.

 

Currently I have been working on a new project, so no longer need to do as fine mesh as last times and the problem does not occur. If I again had problems with meshing, i'll take proposal with GTAC or i'll wait for NX10 Smiley Happy

 

Regards,
