Easiest way to set inital value of node displacements

Post by tgoossens » 02 Jun 2016, 17:22

Context:
I have a mesh of a beam.
I calculate the deformation for load F1

I then want to calculate the deformation for load F2 (slightly higher than F1)
and I want do use the solution (node displacements) calculated for F1 as an initial guess for the matrix solver.


How do I do this most conveniently? Is is possible to specify this in the SIF file or as a command line option.

If not , maybe by editing manually the fortran file of the solver.


Thanks
