Compatibility & Prerequisites

As a direct add-in to the Simcenter 3D environment, OptiAssist provides an optimisation environment for Simcenter 3D that works directly with the native model data. OptiAssist for Simcenter 3D supports Simcenter 3D releases 2019.1 onwards.

Composites capabilities work with both the standard Simcenter 3D composite model and the extended capabilities of the Laminate Composite Module. OptiAssist requires Simcenter 3D, Simcenter Nastran and its Design Optimisation Module.

Providing Efficient Optimisation Work Trails

OptiAssist for Simcenter 3D provides efficient optimisation work trails within Simcenter 3D, automatically preparing the Nastran optimisation (SOL200) solution data based upon the user’s setup. Users may select their existing Nastran solution / sub-case objects and OptiAssist will automatically migrate these to the optimisation solution set. Version 2.0 supports static and dynamic modal solution types. Within the OptiAsisst trails users may consider the following structural responses:

  • Displacement
  • Stress
  • Failure Index
  • Frequency
  • Mass
  • Global Stiffness (Strain Energy)

A Platform for Unlocking Design Optimisation

Design optimisation techniques are not new, but their adoption into engineering developments remains relatively low; often applied by an ‘optimisation expert.’ OptiAssist for Simcenter 3D builds on GRM’s experience of applying design optimisation to real world engineering developments, providing an interface that guides engineers, allowing them to unlock the capabilities of design optimisation.
