PESANTEUR and STAT_NON_LINE

Hello,

I want to run a non-linear analysis (COQUE_3D, contact is necessary) of a structure under self weight. I'm using V10.6.  I was hoping to ramp up the gravity load using DEFI_FONCTION to allow the contacts to resolve properly, but I see that PESANTEUR cannot be used with AFFE_CHAR_MECA_F. I checked U4.44.01 and the forum, but I'm not clear on how to proceed. Can someone point me in the right direction? I have a feeling the solution is staring me in the face!

Thank you... any help would be appreciated.

Gary

Maybe with AFFE_CHAR_MECA_F / FORCE_INTERNE.


Code_Aster release : unstable on (Ubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04 64 bits) - GNU + Intel

Code_Aster. What else ?

Re: PESANTEUR and STAT_NON_LINE

hello

i do it without using AFFE_CHAR_MECA_F, like this

selfwght=AFFE_CHAR_MECA(
  MODELE=model,
  PESANTEUR=_F(
	GRAVITE=10000,DIRECTION=(0,0,-1),
	..................
  ),
);

selfw_m=DEFI_FONCTION(NOM_PARA='INST',VALE=(0,0, 1,1, 2,1.35,),PROL_DROITE='CONSTANT',);

listnl=DEFI_LIST_REEL(
  DEBUT=0.0,
  INTERVALLE=(
	_F(JUSQU_A=1.2,PAS=0.1,),
	_F(JUSQU_A=2,PAS=0.1,),
  ),
);

statnl=STAT_NON_LINE(
  MODELE=model,CHAM_MATER=material,CARA_ELEM=elemcar,
  EXCIT=(
	_F(CHARGE=ground,),
	_F(CHARGE=selfwght,TYPE_CHARGE='FIXE_CSTE',FONC_MULT=selfw_m,),
	........................
  ),
.......................
);

I do the same, and it works.

@ toltec:

Most likely you will need to stabilize the model by the use of soft springs. At least, this is my experience.
