1: Introduction



We will look into setting up a simple mechanical wave example where a pressure generated from the side of a stainless steel block with a void defect in the middle.

Following on from the OnScale Workflow, we will expand on the methodology in greater detail which will be applicable to more complex scripted models. A model can be constructed with the following sections

Model Inputs

  • Default commands
  • Parameterisation


  • Mesh Settings 
  • Keypoint Generation and Grid Setup 


  • Material Properties
  • Assigning to Grid 

Boundary Conditions & Loading 

  • Boundaries of the Model
  • Time Functions
  • Electrical Conditions

Model Outputs

  • Calculated Properties
  • Output Types

Process Model

  • PRCS Command
  • Model Check

Model Execution

  • Execution Setup
  • Plot Settings
  • Methods of Running a Model
  • Extracting Outputs


Creating a Model Folder

Before we start to code, we will need to set up a folder to hold the files we will be using the new file explorer:

  1. Open OnScale in Analyst Mode


  1. Create a new folder and rename it OnScale Wave Example in a directory of your choosing

  1. Navigate into the folder by double clicking the folder
  2. Click save (or CTRL+S) and navigate to the OnScale Wave Example folder
  3. Double check file is save as .flxinp
  4. Name the file Wave_Prop                                                                                                                               

    7. Save file

The file explorer should now contain the file Wave_Prop.flxinp 

You are now ready to code!!
