It is possible to convert a predefined (built-in) standard into Custom. Select standard and execute

from the Standard context menu:Apply Values to Identical Standard - copy all the Input (Constants, Characteristics, Classifications, Standard Tables) of the standard from selected standard to another standard of the same type. Command is available only for predefined standards.

command can be executed on individual item of the Input part of the standard or on a group of items (e.g. Characteristics).

## Constants

Constants is a static value which can be used in checks with the help of Alias. It is useful to create constants and use them in formulas because in case of modifications (related to constants) it is required to make a change in one place only.

Constant dialog box:

### Types

Standard type is a list of titles that can be used in classification or characteristic instead of numbers. To add a new type press from the menu:

The following dialog window will be displayed:

### Alias

Alias is a unique name for Standard items through which they can be accessed in Custom check formulas.

Note: Alias can contain only letters, digits and underscore symbol ("_"). Alias is unique inside the standard and must be different from the model and result variables such as (Area, Yield, S, Abs, etc.).

Note: Alias of the standard is unique between the standards and must be different from the model and result variables.

## Checks

### Custom Check

Custom Check is used in SDC Verifier to perform any user-defined calculations. Custom Check consists of Parameters - formulas are made up of model variables, constants and mathematical operations, results and functions.

There are 4 predefined checks: Static Stress Check, Plate Average Stress, Plate Principal Stresses and Solid Principal Stresses.

To add Custom Check execute

in the checks context menu:Common commands are described in Common Chapter

Alias - variable name to access it from other checks.

Calculate Results over Directions - calculate for X, Y, Z, XY, YZ, ZX, Equivalent, Overall directions, otherwise one direction is calculated.

Calculate Results over Points - calculate for all element's points of interest, otherwise, one point is calculated.

Note: Calculate Results over Directions and Calculate Results over Points should be defined before the first parameter is selected.

Define Selection (by default all entities) using Selector Control to select entities that will be calculated.

Note: Only part of a model can be selected to reduce the calculation time and quickly obtain results for critical places of the model.

Load calculation can be calculated on All Loads or on Load Groups only.

If All Loads option is used then Load Group is calculated as envelope (like in Job), formulas are calculated for Individual Loads, Load Sets but Load Group is min/max/abs among its items.

If Load Groups option is used then formulas are based on group results, e.g. min/max/abs can be used for stresses, strains, line element force and plane element force.

Note: If Custom Check (no load) is created - Load Calculation Type is disabled.

#### Add Parameter

To add Parameter to the Custom Check press . For each parameter, the Title and Alias must be defined.

Replacement - means the outcome is intermediate and not stored. The purpose of the replacement is to be used in other parameters from the current check and don't consume memory.

It is possible to create separate formulas for each direction. One formula will be used for all directions if it is inputted into the All Directions text field.

If the formula of a parameter contains logic operations, then the result will be 1 if the condition is fulfilled, else 0 will be assigned to the parameter value.

Note: Formulas in SDC Verifier are case insensitive.

Entities in the Main Functions contains the most important functions containing sqrt(), max(),power(), average(), etc.

All Direction/Point of Interest is available if the current check is calculated over directions/points. Otherwise, respective direction/point of interest from the source check should be selected.

To Add Result press . The dialog window will appear:

All Direction/Point of Interest is available if the current check is calculated over directions/points. Otherwise, respective direction/point of interest from the selected result should be selected.

Parameters can be edited/copied/removed or converted to characteristic using the popup menu:

Convert to characteristic - create the characteristic of the selected type where the result of parameter will be taken from the characteristic (if characteristic value ≠ 12345678), or will be calculated using the current formula:

If the formula contains items that do not exist for certain element types (e.g. shape height does not exist for shells) then the formula will be evaluated with such items replaced with zero.

## Custom check (no load).

Custom check (no load) is a sub-type of Custom Check. Check supports variables that are not based on loads (young modulus, yield stress, property area, a moment of inertia, classification, characteristics, standard table, constants etc.).
