ANSYS APDL/Workbench Optimisation

  1. Feb 3, 2013 #1
    I have a university coursework where I have to optimise the mass/volume of a bike frame using the cross-sectional area & tube thickness of the cylindrical tubing. I'm fairly competent in doing this process in ANSYS workbench (at least I'd like to think I am!).
    If I had the choice, I would use workbench for this analysis but I'm required to use APDL for the coursework. If there is a tutorial for how to optimise a model in APDL, it would be much appreciated if someone could send it my way! Otherwise, is there some way I can import a model (geometry, loads, boundary conditions, results etc) from APDL to workbench?

    did u find a solution for optimization issue with apdl?? i m also having the same question
