Setup a floating license in SDC Verifier is very easy. The floating license server is located on the internet and it is not required to setup and configure any additional software on company's servers.
To get a floating license file (*.wlin) contact Reseller in your region or write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If proxy servers are used in your company please add proxy settings information to your request.
Install SDC Verifier and run it. Execute Help - License Manager from Main Menu. Choose
If the license is accepted the following message will be displayed: Floating License message:
In case all available licenses are used server replies with Demo License message
Note: If in your company is used software which limits access to internet resources please add exception for the following resources: http://floating.sdcverifier.com and http://backupfloating.sdcverifier.com
SDC Verifier provides 4 types of licenses:
TRIAL - a license for evaluation, works on one computer and has an expiration date.
SINGLE COMPUTER - a license only for one computer.
FLOATING - a fixed number of users can connect to the license server simultaneously from one company office.
GLOBAL - same as floating license but can be used worldwide.
LICENSE RENTAL - lease 3 or 6 months.
EDUCATIONAL - for Universities, student projects, master's theses and doctoral dissertations.
After SDC Verifier is installed, a communication between SDC Verifier and Ansys has to be installed. To configure the communication perform following steps:
Plugin SDC-ANSYS Plugin.wbex file is included together with in archive together with SDCVerifierSetup.exe file
Start Ansys Workbench and perform->
Choose the downloaded SDC Verifier Extension file and press:
The folliwing message will appear:
To Load extension, go to the ACT Start Page -> Manage Extensions:
Click on SDC-ANSYS Plugin and pressor .
- the extension will be available only for saved a workbench project. For each project extension has to be loaded manually;
- the extension will be available every time the workbench is started;
After the extension is loaded, SDC Verifier will appear in the workbench toolbox:
SDC Verifier starts from the Workbench:
1. Find SDC Verifier in the list;
2. Drag item to the Project Schematic;
3. Attach model;
4. Double click to run SDC Verifier;
Note: Minimum supported version of Ansys is 18.2.
Note: new SDC project will be created if model is opened first time with SDC Verifier. In case one SDC project is saved, it will be opened automatically. List of saved SDC projects will be displayed otherwise:
SDC projects are saved together with a workbench project. If the workbench project will not be saved, SDC project changes will be lost.
A Multi Nodal Force tool is created to speed-up an application of nodal forces/moments to your model. When a huge amount of loads should be applied it can be time-consuming to create them one-by-one. The Multi-Nodal Force tool supports import from excel and can perform this work automatically.
The following example demonstrates how 10 loads can be applied in 4 simple steps.
1. Execute Multi Nodal Force from the FemLoads context menu:
2. Copy data (without header row with text) from excel to clipboard (Ctrl+C):
3. Press From Clipboard button:
4. Press OK and all loads will be created in FEMAP:
It is crucial to check if the sum of applied forces is correct for all situations or individual loads (IL). With the help of Expand Flow Table, it is very easy to do. The following example demonstrates how to create an expand flow table with the Sum of Applied Forces for Individual Loads.
Requirements: The Femap model has to contain loads and constraints.
1. Execute Job - Individual Load - Add from the main menu:
2. Select all Fem Loads and Press Create (If your model was analyzed, switch to option From Existing Results and select all Output Sets, step 3 can be skipped):
3. Press Analyze to run analysis:
5. Select all Individual Loads:
6. Define Options:
Category: Applied Force;
Summarize Over Nodes: ON;
7. Press Fill Table:
The forces in every direction are highlighted (minimum = aqua and maximum = red).
Moreover, in report designer Sum of Forces tables are predefined for every Job. They can be added to the report from toolbox:
With this standard table controlling your work is simplified.
SDC Verifier implements 2 ways of importing existing results from Femap:
1. Create Individual Loads based on Output Sets
Click on Individual Loads in the Model Tree. Select the tab From Existing Results (based on Output Sets). The list of all available Output Sets in Femap will be shown. Select output sets to import and press Create:
In the tree you will see created Individual Loads:
This method is quick, but it has one big disadvantage: when a design is updated and analysis is rerun the output sets should be reimported. Moreover, it's not possible to run the analysis from the SDC Verifier.
2. Create Individual Loads based on boundary conditions and Import Results
Click on the Individual Loads in the Model Tree. Select the tab Calculation Loads. The list with Fem Load and Constraints will be shown. Select boundary conditions to create Individual Loads and press Create:
Execute Import Results from the Individual Loads context menu:
It possible to link Individual Load with Output Set one by one or use a Distribute option (link at once):
This method requires more actions but gives benefits when generating a report (shows what boundary conditions are used for what load) and when the model should be reanalyzed.
The following standards are implemented in SDC Verifier:
Extreme Flow Table gives a possibility to preview the worst results on selection for several loads. An overview can be done for any category of results (stress, displacement, strain, etc.) requested in an analysis.
The following example demonstrates how to create absolute stress overview for all load sets (combinations).
1. Execute Extreme Flow Table from Tables context menu:
2. Press the following button to select loads. In the displayed windows press LS to select all Load Sets (Combinations):
3. Define Table Options (Show Absolute Stress among all stress directions):
Category: Stress (can be any results requested in analysis)
Table Type: Parameter over Directions;
4. Press Fill Table to display results:
5. Modify Options (to display min/max/abs stress for X direction):
Table Type: Direction over Parameters;
Press Fill Table.
A selector is a powerful tool that helps to make complicated selections using a variety of rules. One of the biggest benefits of the selection is that it is always up to date.
The following example demonstrates how to create extreme weld stress table on a weld selection.
Requirements: The Femap model has to contain plate elements. At least one load in SDC project should be defined
1. Execute Recognition - Weld Finder tool from the main menu:
2. Press Find Welds and OK.
3. Execute Extreme - Weld Stress from Tables context menu:
1. Execute Extreme - Weld Stress from Tables context menu:
2. Press the following button and select condition Welds - All Welds.
3. Press the Preview button to preview weld elements. Press OK to save table:
Few stiffeners were added to the model. The only one thing that should be done to have our selection up to date - recognize welds again in Weld Finder (step 1).
Open weld stress table and check the selection. An amount of elements changed from 7593 to 7974:
