Import existing results from Femap
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 is 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.
