Connect several Finite Element Simulations

Connect several Finite Element Simulations

Connect several Finite Element Simulations


I am modelling the blow-moulding process in ANSYS workbench 18.1. I am doing it by several isolated simulations. How can I connect all those simulations? I mean, how can I transport results from one simulation to another if I connect it to an optimization code, written in FORTRAN or MATLAB? What must I do?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,
