Here simulation analysis will be performed with the beam 3-point bending model.

Creation of a physical model

A physical model has to be defined to link the evaluator with the inputs. The newly created physical model looks as following:

Creation of the physical model.

The connector is added by clicking on the Plus.png of the Evaluator section. The following window appears:

Selection of the evaluator.

The Mio object is selected. The inputs and outputs of the physical model are automatically set.

The model will be used for uncertainties quantification using Monte Carlo simulation. The analysis is started by clicking on the run icon (Run.png) on the top right corner of the editor.

Deterministic analysis

A deterministic analysis can be run in order to test whether the model has been defined correctly and to generate the output files. Select a Design of experiment analysis, and then Deterministic analysis.

Start of a deterministic analysis.

Once the deterministic is successful performed, Monte Carlo simulation is performed.

Monte Carlo simulation

The model previously defined is used to preform a Monte Carlo simulation using 5000 samples.

Pressing next the High Performance Configuration must be set (see Beam 3-point bending (HPC))


To display the results, double click on the SimulationData object available on the context menu.
