SnRD Post Results Processing

This section of the document guides you through the process of post-processing. Using the following steps, you will be able to load the model and its corresponding result files and generate the plots required for the analysis and evaluation of the simulation results.

For a Static loadcase workflow, you can only perform the following operations -
  1. Post Processing, &
  2. Optimization

Sensitivity Analysis, I.e the risk and root cause analysis are not supported due to lack of modal sensitivity data for a linear static simulation.

For SnRD Post processing, the following file formats are required. These files are generated when you solve a solver deck on OptiStruct-

  • .PCH - PUNCH file containing the displacement data
  • .H3D - HyperWorks X results file containing the modal displacement data.
The following sections in this chapter will take you through the steps of loading and post processing the results to evaluate squeak and rattle issues.
Note: For the tutorial purpose you can refer to below sections for the next steps in Static SnRD Post processing workflow -
  1. Launching SnRD Post
  2. SnRD Post Processing Tutorial
    Note: For Thermal Effects workflow, please use the H3D and PCH files generated after solving the FEM
  3. Once Post Processing is done, you can review the plots and results to view the squeak and rattle issues. After that, the you can switch to Sensitivity Analysis to perform risk and root cause analysis.
