I'm working with ANSYS Classic.
I ran a first step (static, non-linear) with a certain shell thickness (SECDATA in /PREP7) and elastic modulus. Now I would like to change these values and run a RESTART analysis.
First I tried to change thickness/modulus in PREP7, and then restarted the analysis, but the database updates to the old values.
Then, I tried with:
2. INISTATE, write...
3. /prep7, change thk/E, UPGEOM (to 'load' the geometric config)
5. INISTATE, READ... (to 'load' stress state).
but it does not seem to work (the .ist file written is empty). Anyway, I guess the INISTATE reads/loads only values directly applied with INISTATE command.
I think there could be a way to write stress/strain values (in POST1, for example) and then load them (SOLU?) in the modified db (change thk, E, UPGEOM), but I cannot find a way.
Did somebody already face the question?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
thanks in advance,
