Bulk Data Entry Reanalyze the final iteration of a topology optimization without penalization.

Parameter Values Description
REANAL 0.0 ≤ Real ≤ 1.0

No default

This parameter is for restart runs of topology optimizations only.

Inclusion of this parameter on a restart run will cause the last iteration to be reanalyzed without penalization.

If the value given is less than the value of MINDENS (default = 0.01) used in the optimization, all elements will be assigned the densities they had during the final iteration of the optimization. As there is no penalization, stiffness will now be proportional to density.

If the value given is greater than the value of MINDENS, those elements whose density is less than the given value will have density equal to MINDENS, all others will have a density of 1.0.
