Download SDC for Ansys


Menu contains the following item:

Results Manager

A results manager allows to operate with saved to files results. Execute Home - Result - Results Manager from the ribbon:

The results are sorted by folders (by loads individually for each job and by checks individually for each standard) and divided into two parts:

Job Results - simple displacement, stress etc. results.

Check Results - calculated results for fatigue, buckling etc.

- open window for selecting results folder path;

- create default result folder that is based on the project file location if it is saved, or on the model file location otherwise;

- detach selected load results and remove respective files from disc;

Note: If a job, load, standard or check is selected, the results are detached for all the child items.

- expand all nodes;

- collapse all nodes;

- -re-read info from the header files and attach files to existing loads/check results;

Lock / Unlock results

When a project is loaded, the results are automatically attached and the results folder is locked by current computer to prevent the results overwriting. The messages are displayed:

It is possible to lock / unlock the result folder manually in the results manager window.

When the project is closed, the results are automatically unlocked, so other computers can access results overwriting. The results folder will be locked by respective computer in this case.

Store / Restore results

SDC results are stored automatically to the files each time a calculation is performed. By default, the load and check results for the load groups are stored to the files. This can be changed in Project Preferences:

The results are restored from the files instead of the calculations. Once they are calculated, they can be used any time when needed. This will reduce the time, necessary to preview the results or generate the report.

Note: The load groups or load sets that contain several loads require memory allocation also for their items. To reduce memory usage, perform all necessary calculations once, save the project file and restart the program. The results will be read from the files and memory will be allocated for respective load sets and load groups only.

Export Results to Ansys

Export selected criteria/contour plots that were previously created in Jobs and Standards to Ansys Mechanical. Each plot will be exported to the respective solution depending on load that is used in a plot.

Note: All results that are used for plots should be possible to calculate in SDC Verifier, otherwise plot will not be exported.

Note: Plots will not be evaluated in Ansys Mechanical automatically after export.

To export results execute Home - Result - Export Results from the ribbon and select plots to be exported.
