The current version of Hypermesh does not support 2nd order elements for LS-DYNA. So this article shows how to modify the template to got these elements.
- Download this template file : lsdyna_2nd_order_tpl
- Create a small TCL script named « lsdyna_2nd_order.tcl » with following content:
set tpl "/home/user/lsdyna_2nd_order.tpl" set myhmdir [file dirname [hm_info hmfilename]] set output [file join $myhmdir "dyna_2nd_order.k"] hm_answernext "yes"; eval *usercheck $tpl $output 1
- I used Linux and my template is saved in my $HOME. So you have to adapt your path (1st line of script) where is the template was saved.
- Download HM model example: lsdyna_2nd_order_hm
From Hypermesh session: File => Run => Tcl/Tk script => select TCL script « lsdyna_2nd_order.tcl ».
The output « dyna_2nd_order.k » will be saved in same folder as HM model.
