Transfer Load Data from an Existing Model to a New Model

This task is an example of transferring load data to a new model.

In this task you will learn how to transfer data from an existing model to a new model.
  1. Import the model or analysis file containing transfer loads into HyperMesh.

    Figure 1.
  2. In the Model Browser, right-click and select Create > Field from the menu.
  3. In the Entity Editor, edit the field's corresponding attributes:

    Figure 2.
    1. Set Type to continuous.
    2. Set System Type to real.
    3. Set Source to current model.
    4. Set Data Source to pressures.
    5. In the Source Entity List field, use the elements selector to select pressure loads on the old mesh.
    After selecting source entities, a Table entity is automatically created and populated with values associated to the nodes/element.

    Figure 3.
  4. Delete the old mesh and loads. Do not delete the field you just created.
  5. Import the new mesh into HyperMesh.

    Figure 4.
  6. In the Model Browser, right-click on the field entity and select Realize from the menu.
  7. In the Field Realization dialog, define the realization settings:

    Figure 5.
    1. Using the Entity: Node selector, select the nodal temperature load target nodes to be mapped.
    2. Set Field type to pressure.
    3. Click Apply.
      Transfer loads are mapped to the new mesh, thereby transferring the thickness, material angle, or ply information to the new elements.

      Figure 6.
    4. Click Contour to view the contour of the pressure loads transferred to the new mesh.
