Adjusting the weighting factor w is able to obtain the optimization curve of the design. In the research work of others, transition of the whole topology is obvious and clear as w is incremented or decremented, shown in Fig. 1<img src="" alt="" /> However, in my topology optimization structure, the problem of adjusting the weight factor transition is not obvious, as shown in Fig. 2.<img src="" alt="" /> When w=0.5, the overall topology is very much inclined to flow rather than equalizing flow and heat transfer. It is worth noting that I have normalized obj1 and obj2 before optimization. If obj1=Ere/Ebase, Ere refers to the flow dissipation after optimization and Ebase values the flow dissipation in the initial state. So my question is, what are those parameters I need to adjust or observe in order to adjust the weight factors to get the proper topology. Also what do I need to do to perform the prior sensitivity analysis for topology optimization in comsol?

Will anyone help me to understand regarding electric heating in comsol.</p> <p>I am having almost 20 times more temperature than in my reference paper. It means the copper electrode is heating too much in same input and time duration than in the reference paper.</p> Thu, 28 Sep 2023 18:59:46 +0000 4.2023-09-28 18:59:46.330522 Hydrogen Storage System <p>Hi, Does any one know how to couple chemical reaction and the generated heat with Brinkman equations and Heat transfer in an hydrogen storage tank</p> Thu, 28 Sep 2023 10:08:49 +0000 4.2023-09-28 10:08:49.330501 Saving the last iteration of topology optimisation <p>Dear,</p> <p>For my project, I plan to perform an analysis on the final iteration of the topology optimization, where the geometry obtained from this last iteration will serve as the basis for the analysis. How can I do this? Is it possible to save the result of the topology optimisation in a new model and then do analysis?</p> <p>Thank you in advanced!</p> <p>With kind regards, Dehlia</p> Wed, 27 Sep 2023 15:03:55 +0000 4.2023-09-27 15:03:55.330491 Possibility to define Fixed Constraints only for certain degrees of freedom? <p>As part of the topology optimization of a part attached to rods I am looking for ways to restrict only certain DOFs at the mounting points. For example, I would like to restrict the mouvement of the inside surface of a mounting hole only in z direction and not in the other five degrees of freedom. So far I have only found the fixed constraint otpion; however this restricts motion in ALL directions. Does anyone have a clue on how to achieve this?</p> Wed, 27 Sep 2023 11:57:05 +0000 4.2023-09-27 11:57:05.330481 How can I find the change in diameter with time? <p>Hi all, I modelled a 3D model of a pressure tube to find the effect of creep on it.</p> <p>I defined the boundary load, internal pressure, and a creep law.</p> <p>Now I want to find the change in diameter of the pressure tube with time due to creep at a particular location (along length) of the pressure tube.</p> <p>How can I find this.

When try to calculate S parameter, we need to fix the input power of the terminal and then perform a frequency domain study. I try to calculate the power from the terminal current and voltage by the equation for average AC power. But the result are not equal to the value I set to the terminal and it looks similar to the S parameter. Does my calculation give the output power? And How comsol apply the fixed power to the terminal in terms of the boundary conditions ?</p> Wed, 27 Sep 2023 08:47:11 +0000 4.2023-09-27 08:47:11.330461 Rotation angle in rigid connector <p>Hi,</p> <p>In Solid mechanic problem, I made a model using a rigid connector between boundaries (as attached figure). The prescribed angle of rotation to the z axis is set 1 (rad). After the computation, the derived value for the rigid body rotation to the z axis (solid.thz_rig3) is just 0.95885 (rad). Why the values are different and how to have the derived value equal to 1 (rad) as the prescribed value?</p> <p>Thank you!</p> Wed, 27 Sep 2023 07:18:05 +0000 4.2023-09-27 07:18:05.330451 Cut point 3D analysis on applied loads <p>I have done a piezoelectric simulation and have added a Cut Point 3D in geometry. Once i compute the solutions I am able to plot the derived variables result like electric potential on that particular 3D point, but I am unable to graph the applied loads (obtained from initial conditions) to plot applied loads and generated potentials in one single 1D graph.

The rotational velocity around the center of mass of the system would also be very interesting, but I haven't found a way to do that either. Has anyone else run into this?
