How to Resolve Nodes and Points That Are Not Visible in Hypermesh?

logo

Skill-Lync

After installing the HyperWorks student version, there will sometimes be an issue in visualizing the nodes and points after importing a model. Changing environment variables can help in resolving the issue.

What is Hypermesh Software?

A market-leading, multi-disciplinary finite element pre-processor, HyperMesh controls the creation of the largest, most complicated models in mechanical engineering. From the input of CAD geometry to the production of a solver file that is ready to run, it has become a popular and powerful tool in design engineering these days.

What are Nodes and Points in Hypermesh?

The CAD model is meshed to produce nodes.  They are a portion of the FEA model to which element properties have been assigned. Only at these node positions are forces and displacements calculated, followed by interpolation.

On the other hand, points come under the purview of geometry. They store geometric information and don't possess any such model quality.

 

Step-Wise Instructions To Follow after Closing the Hypermesh Software

 

Step 1: 

Type in ‘Environment variables’ in the windows search bar.

 

Click on the ‘Edit the system environment variables’ option from the search result.

 

Step 2: 

The System Properties dialog box opens, select ‘Environment Variables’ button at the bottom of the dialog box.

 

 

Step 3: 

Environment variables dialog box opens, displaying the user variables for admin and system variables. Select new from the system variables section.

 

 

Step 4: 

The aim is to create a new environment variable for Hyperworks. After clicking new, a new dialog box opens asking for the variable name and value.

 

 

In the place of a variable name type in ‘HW_USE_OPENCL’ (without quotes), and in the place of variable value, enter ‘0’ (zero) as given below the picture.

 

 

Click OK in all the subsequent windows. You are done with creating the new environment variables. Now open the Hypermesh software and try creating or importing the model. All the nodes, temp nodes, and points appear in the model, wherever they are required.

What is Hourglass Effect? Working & Fixes

When the elements in a model deform but the strain energy is not computed for that deformation, it results in an Hourglass deformation effect or Hourglass effect. Usually, this can be clearly seen in the post-processing stage where the elements will have a zig-zag formation.
