Using Design Study to Vary Constraints

Experimenter
Experimenter

I have a 2D plate mesh model that I have constrained (pinned) on 2 nodes. I would like to set up a design study with multiple sets of dual nodes constrained and have it report the corresponding spc forces. Any ideas how I could do this?

Thanks.

You simply define multiple Constraint Sets with a pair of nodes constrained in each set. Then when you go to create the Analysis in the Analysis Manager, use MultiSet to select all of your Constraint Sets. It will create SUBCASEs for each combination of Load/Constraint Set and all of them will be analyzed. Results for each will come back in separate Result Sets that you can then review.
