Individual Load

SDC Verifier gives a possibility to create the following types of Individual Loads:

To create Individual Loads, execute Job - Individual Load - Add from the main menu:

Individual_loads

To create few Individual Loads for the calculation, define the Fem Loads and the Constraints or use the Inertia Relief option.

To create individual loads based on the results, click on the From Existing Results tab:

Individual_loads_results

Select output sets and press Create.

In Static Job, one individual load can contain only one Output Set. In buckling or custom Load, can contain more than one Output Set. To define the amount of the Output Set per load use option Results per Load.

Edit

To edit a single Individual Load, select it in the Navigation Tree:

It is possible to modify the boundary conditions, the safety factor or attached Output Set.

To edit a few Individual Loads execute Job - Individual Load - Edit Multiple:

Individual Loads Edit Multiple Femap

Fem Load or Constraint can be changed for a few selected Individual Loads by pressing Apply to Selected.

Fem Load/Constraint can be modified from Clipboard. Copy IDs from Excel, select a single cell (top left corner) and press from Clipboard:

Individual Loads Edit Multiple Clipboard Femap

If Fem Load/Constraint ID exists in the model it is replaced with Title otherwise ID is pasted. Alternatively, it is possible to manually type ID in the Fem Load/Constraint column to edit Individual Load.

Imports Results

To import the Output Sets into the Individual Loads execute Job - Individual Load - Import Results from the main menu:

Output Set column displays the Output Set attached to the load or "-" if the load does not have results.

In the Multiple Loads group box is possible to link the multiple output sets to multiple individual loads. Select the individual loads, the output sets and press Distribute. Use All button to include all available Loads or all available Output Sets.

Note: If an amount of available loads is equal to the number of available output sets all items will be selected automatically.

Individual_loads_import_distribute

When selecting Output Sets there are two options:

Individual Loads Import Results Femap

It is possible to import few output sets for one Individual Load for the buckling or custom Job:

Individual_loads_import_import

Results per Load is available for all jobs except the static (the load can have only one result). If some of the selected loads already have results in static job, then the warning message will be displayed.

To remove all results from all loads press Remove All Output Sets.

Safety Factors

Safety Factor is used in the calculation according to the standards:

Individual_loads_safety

To change multiple safety factors execute Job - Individual Load - Safety Factors:

Individual_loads_safety_change_multiple

Set Safety Factor value and press Set to selected to apply it for the selected loads.
