*Import problem

*Import problem

*Import problem

(OP)
Hi, I am trying to run a Standard analysis based on the results of another Standard analysis but I always get this error msg:

***ERROR: The restart (.res) and results (.fil) files are not organized as an assembly of part instances. Therefore, some options that read data from these files currently cannot be used in models defined in terms of an assembly of part instances. IMPORT is one of them.
 ***NOTE: DUE TO AN INPUT ERROR THE ANALYSIS PRE-PROCESSOR HAS BEEN UNABLE TO INTERPRET SOME DATA.  SUBSEQUENT ERRORS MAY BE CAUSED BY THIS OMISSION

Could someone help me plz???

RE: *Import problem

Hi Altet6

According to the documentation (ABAQUS Analysis User's Manual, section 9.2.1), ABAQUS CAE can only import a model that is defined as an assembly of instances.  It seems that your original analysis was probably not defined as an assembly, and so will not import to the new analysis.

You may have to re-define the original model in terms of parts and assemblies, or rewrite the second analysis with a flat (non parts and assemblies) structure.

Regards

Martin

Thanks, but my first analysis is an assembly of instances...that is what I dont understand...Why I get this error if my model is an assembly of 4 instances(4 times the same part)

RE: *Import problem

Hi altet6

Yeah, that ain't right is it dazed

Are you creating the models in CAE?  If so, I would try hand-coding the follow-on analysis input deck using *INSTANCE with *IMPORT to read in the first model results.

Afraid that I tend to use Hypermesh, si I don't know too much about CAE.
