Job – the calculation set that contains loads and their combinations to be calculated with the defined calculation options. Job is created based on analysis from Ansys Mechanical.

The Job consists of the following components:

Add Job

To add a new job execute Jobs - Add from the tree. The following dialog will be displayed:

Analysis - the Ansys Mechanical Ansys based on which Job will be created.

Each step (result) is imported as Individual Load. They can be used in Load Sets to create a combination of results with factors or in Load Group (Envelope) to find min/max.

Request results (Stress, Nodal Force, etc.) to define what categories of results have to be analyzed in Ansys Mechanical.

Selection - the elements for which the results will be read. If you are interested to check only the portion of the model reduction of the result selection to that portion will improve memory usage and calculation performance.

Hot Spot Stress

Use Weld Stresses outside Locations - display Weld stress values for all elements that are not used in Hot Spot Locations defined in Weld Finder. Display 0 if turned off;

Use Average Corner Data - use averaged top/bottom stresses from all attached elements at the element corner where hot spot is calculated.


To analyze multiple Jobs / Standards execute Home - Main - Analyze - Analyze Multiple Jobs/Standards from the ribbon:


Skip Analyzed Jobs - analyzed jobs (all Individual Loads have results) will be skipped.

Skip Jobs and Standards with Results - loads with results won't be recalculated (if option Skip Analyzed Jobs is checked);

Note: Results of all categories and selected Standards will be calculated automatically for all loads that were analyzed and can be time consuming (depending on the size of the model and amount of loads/standards to be calculated).


If boundary conditions, amount of steps, loads values were changed it is required to execute update command from the Job context menu

Job of Jobs

The job of jobs is a special job to create load combinations based on individual loads from other jobs and envelopes based on loads from other jobs.

To create Job of jobs execute Jobs - Add Job of Jobs from the tree and select referenced Jobs:


All Individual Loads from the referenced jobs can be combined in Load Sets:

Note: Analyze command for Job of jobs will run the analysis for all referenced jobs.
