This task will show you how to compute the Static Case
Solution of a Finite Element Model on which
you previously created a Restraint object and
a Load object. You will store the results in
a given directory.
Click External Storage
in the Solver Tools toolbar.
The External Storage dialog box appears.
The Results and Computation Data are stored in one
single file with given extensions:
If needed, change the path of the Result Data
and/or Computation Data directories.
Click OK.
Click Compute
.
The Compute dialog box appears.
Select All.
Click OK.
The Progress Bar dialog box provides a series of
status messages (Meshing, Factorization,
Solution) that inform you of the degree of advancement of the
computation process.
Upon successful completion of the computation, the
status of all objects in the analysis specification tree up to the
Static Case Solution.1 objects set is changed to valid. In
other words, the
symbol appears no more.
The color change of the Restraints and Loads symbols
to blue, also reflecting the fact that the Static Case Solution
computation was successful.
