Algor v19: No Results Displayed from MES run.

Algor v19: No Results Displayed from MES run.

Algor v19: No Results Displayed from MES run.

I have the same problem that a user a few years ago had in thread810-79827.

I'm running a MES simulation on a weldment to examine buckling from eccentric loads, etc... Using the BCSLIB-EXT sparse solver (which I was told during MES training is very fast for MES) and a rather course mesh, the solver finishes in about 37min. However, there is no data in the Results tap. I'm not even given the option to display stress or displacments in the "Results" menu. Any thoughts?

Also, does anyone have any further guidelines concerning which solvers are most effective for a given type of model?



RE: Algor v19: No Results Displayed from MES run.

Just for fun, see if there is an *.esx file by trying to load an Algor results file (File:  Open:  Change "File of Type" to "Algor Results").  If there isn't, then the analysis isn't really generating any output.  Check for errors in the log file (If it is generating a report, you can take a look at the log file through the report tab).  Several other issues that I've had in the past...I haven't had a problem with the last few versions.

If everything seems OK after that, track me through my website and send me archive if you can.  I'll run it and see what happens...

RE: Algor v19: No Results Displayed from MES run.


I looked and there was no "Algor Results" file. Neither was there a "log" file listed under the Report tab as is normally the case. Let me know if you have any ideas based on the problems you observed in prior versions of Algor.

But before I bother you with the model, I'm trying to "dumb it up" with more plate elements, etc... and trying a linear static run again. If I don't get anywhere, I'll bug ya. Thank you for the offer.

Check the box on the Output tab that says input information in output file...click loads and boundary conditions...that should at least give you an output file, but there should be an error of some kind with the input data.

In my case in the past, I was trying to use brick elements and it was eliminating the internal mesh.  Because of that, I remove the default to build the brick mesh at the time of analysis and force it to go ahead and build it, if I'm automeshing.

White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
White Paper - Model Based Engineering for Wire Harness Manufacturing
Modern cars, trucks, and other vehicles feature an ever-increasing number of sophisticated electrical and electronic features, placing a larger burden on the wiring harness that enables these new features. As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.

White Paper - Modeling and Optimizing Wire Harness Costs for Variation Complexity
This paper will focus on the quantification of the complexity related costs in harness variations in order to model them, allowing automated algorithms to optimize for these costs. A number of real world examples will be provided as well. Since no two businesses are alike, it is the aim of this paper to provide the foundational knowledge and methodology so the reader can assess their own business to model how variation complexity costs affect their business.
