Whole contour result of cyclic symmetry analysis in NX 10 ?

Hello,

 

I am studying cyclic symmetry analysis in NX10,

and i have a question:

how to display whole contour result of cyclic symmetry analysis in NX 10 ?2017-02-05_175818.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The whole model as shown below:

This capability is not available in NX 10.

 

Starting in Simcenter 11, if you run a NX Multiphysics Structural solution that contains a cyclic coupling, you will be able to display virtual sectors in Post Processing.

 

See the sollowing articles in the Simcenter 11 help:

Hello, JimB,

 

Thank you very much for your answer !

Hi,

I have run Simcenter Multiphysic thermal analysis and been looking forward to display results as whole model, but I don't know how to turn on that Cyclic Symmetry Result. Can somebody give me a hint?

Does the solution contain a Cyclic Symmetry simulation object?

The Cyclic Results button would be on the dialog shown if the model contained a cyclic coupling solution object AND if a Default Cyclic Symmetry Cylindrical CSYS were defined on the FEM options.

Hello JimB,

I try and try but I'm stucked. I wan to set up Use Cyclic CSYS if defined in New FEM and Simulation dialog pane but I do not have this field there. Is there any other condition to able this option?

Because of the way that the new part files are created internally, coordinated system creation/selection for the FEM is not available in the New FEM and Simulation command.

 

If you use the New FEM option, you can create/select a cyclic csys there. If you really need to use New FEM and SIM, you can create them, then make the FEM the work part, edit it and then specify a Default Cyclic CSYS.

Hi JimB,

I admit - must be dumb. But still trying to reach it.

I have defined that option for FEM file, I have cyclic coupling object in simulation (otherwise the results would be unsane), but still nothing in Set Results dialog box.

There must be another catch in it.

The good news is that you are not dumb Smiley Happy

 

The Cyclic Symmetric Result button is currently only enabled in Post when it detects both a CYCSET and CYCAXIS definition in the Nastran .op2 structural results.

 

The model you supplied is a thermal only model so there is no .op2 file to trigger the button - there are only thermal results in a .bun file.

 

I created a structural model containing a Normal Modes subcase and using the two Cyclic Symmetry solution objects you had defined. The button is enabled for those results and a full model display can be generated.

Please contact GTAC and log an ER requesting that Cyclic Results display be enabled for thermal results.
