To Create a Reaction Force Design Objective
1. Click Home > Design Objective. The Design Objective dialog box opens.
2. In the Name box, type a name for the design objective.
3. To change the color used for the design objective, click , and select a color in the Color Editor dialog box.
4. To define the physical feature to optimize, in the Response type box, select Reaction Force (SPCF).
5. To define the type of reaction force, in the Response component box, select an option.
6. To define the portion of the model to which the design objective applies, click the Objective target collector, and then select points, edges, surfaces, volumes, or components.
7. To exclude regions from the optimization for this design objective, click the Excluded regions collector, and select volumes, points, edges, or surfaces to exclude.
8. To select analyses that correspond to the design objective, in the Analysis box, click the arrow, and select the check boxes of the analyses to include in the design objective.
9. In the Goal box, select an option:
Min—Minimizes the reaction force.
Max—Maximizes the reaction force.
10. To assign a weight factor to this design objective in relation to other objectives, in the Weight factor box, type a value.
11. Click OK.
