Download SDC for Femap


Menu contains the following items:

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 Femap

Tool allows to export all Load results and check results for the selected loads to Femap Output Sets.

To export results execute Home - Result - Export Results from the ribbon.

Select Load using Load Selector.

Total Point Calculation Type - the element result for stresses and strains (min, max, absmax and average);

Group Calculation Type - the parameter of Load Group to export.

Plate Buckling Common Value - type of the plate buckling results.

Export only total point results - export only elemental results and skip corner results.

Export results by checks - result for one check over the loads are exported to one output set.

Export results by loads - result for one load over the checks are exported to one output set.

Use Check Short Titles - use abbreviation for check (Ch1, Ch2, etc.) instead of the full check name.
