Not enough memory to analyse structure!:-(

Not enough memory to analyse structure!:-(

Not enough memory to analyse structure!:-(


I have to do an analysis of a big structure, and i have 50Gb free in my harddisk, 2Gb of RAM. My analysis ask me for 10000Mb, but in the end, an error occur. The error said that the partition of SCRATCH file was full. I don't understand how can i modify the space of this file.
Can you help me, please!

RE: Not enough memory to analyse structure!:-(

Try to paste (after some changes to fit your /scratch location) the following lines right after the NASTRAN statement of your input file:

INIT DBALL LOGICAL=(DBALL1(300000),DBALL2(300000),DBALL3(300000),
ASSIGN DBALL1='/scratch/scrfile.DB1'
ASSIGN DBALL2='/scratch/scrfile.DB2'
ASSIGN DBALL3='/scratch/scrfile.DB3'
ASSIGN DBALL4='/scratch/scrfile.DB4'
ASSIGN DBALL5='/scratch/scrfile.DB5'
ASSIGN DBALL6='/scratch/scrfile.DB6'
ASSIGN DBALL7='/scratch/scrfile.DB7'
ASSIGN DBALL8='/scratch/scrfile.DB8'
ASSIGN DBALL9='/scratch/scrfile.DB9'
ASSIGN DBALL10='/scratch/scrfile.DB10'
ASSIGN DBALL11='/scratch/scrfile.DB11'
ASSIGN DBALL12='/scratch/scrfile.DB12'
ASSIGN DBALL13='/scratch/scrfile.DB13'
ASSIGN DBALL14='/scratch/scrfile.DB14'
ASSIGN DBALL15='/scratch/scrfile.DB15'
ASSIGN DBALL16='/scratch/scrfile.DB16'
ASSIGN DBALL17='/scratch/scrfile.DB17'
ASSIGN DBALL18='/scratch/scrfile.DB18'
ASSIGN DBALL19='/scratch/scrfile.DB19'
$ ------========--------
INIT SCRATCH LOGICAL=(SCRA1(300000),SCRA2(300000),SCRA3(300000),
ASSIGN SCRA1='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA1'
ASSIGN SCRA2='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA2'
ASSIGN SCRA3='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA3'
ASSIGN SCRA4='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA4'
ASSIGN SCRA5='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA5'
ASSIGN SCRA6='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA6'
ASSIGN SCRA7='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA7'
ASSIGN SCRA8='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA8'
ASSIGN SCRA9='/scratch/scrfile.SCRA9'
ASSIGN SCR1='/scratch/scrfile.SCR1'
ASSIGN SCR2='/scratch/scrfile.SCR2'
ASSIGN SCR3='/scratch/scrfile.SCR3'
ASSIGN SCR4='/scratch/scrfile.SCR4'
ASSIGN SCR5='/scratch/scrfile.SCR5'
ASSIGN SCR6='/scratch/scrfile.SCR6'
ASSIGN SCR7='/scratch/scrfile.SCR7'
ASSIGN SCR8='/scratch/scrfile.SCR8'
ASSIGN SCR9='/scratch/scrfile.SCR9'

I think it should work this way.

Let me know.
