OptiStruct is a proven, modern structural solver with comprehensive, accurate and scalable solutions for linear and nonlinear analyses across statics and dynamics, vibrations, acoustics, fatigue, heat transfer, and multiphysics disciplines.

In this tutorial, dynamic analysis on a simple three rigid bodies model is performed using OptiStruct. The force of gravity acts along the global Y axis, and the system has one degree of freedom.

In this tutorial you will work with a slider crank model, which consists of a rigid crank, a flexible connecting rod, and a rigid sliding block. The objective of this analysis is to determine the deformation and stress of a flexible connecting rod under the high speed motion of the system.

In this tutorial, you will perform a multibody dynamics analysis (simulation type: Transient Analysis) of a slender cantilever beam using OptiStruct.

In this tutorial you will use an existing finite element model to generate a flexible body for use in MotionSolve. You will run the model in OptiStruct.

In this tutorial you will how to create model contacts using HyperMesh.

In this tutorial, you learn how to model a CVCV (curve-to-curve) joint using HyperMesh

In this tutorial, a multibody dynamics analysis (simulation type: Transient Analysis) of a hook on a flexible cable are performed using OptiStruct.
