Tables

SDC Verifier implements tables both for single and multiple loads (Flow Tables).

Expand/Extreme table

An expand table displays the results for each Node or Element in Selection.

An extreme Table displays minimum, maximum, absolute maximum or max delta (for load groups) results and their location over directions.

To open Table execute Job - Table - Table (expand/extreme) from the main menu. Alternatively, use the Tables context menu and select Table (expand/extreme):

Table

The following options for a table should be defined:

Table Type - expand or extreme;

Load - select load using Load Selector Control. Press to change the load;

Result Cases \ Output Sets - list of results, available only when load contains few results.

Category - a result category to display the results for. Can be nodal (displacement etc.) or elemental (stress etc.)

Expand settings - available when expand table type is selected:

Expand_settings

Show for element - available for the element-nodal types of results. It is possible to select All Points (top and bottom result for each corner node):

Show_for_element

or Total (is calculated among all points).

Show_for_element_total

Element Total - available for element-nodal types of results. Defines the type of calculation of the total point: minimum, maximum, absolute maximum (AbsMax) or average among all points.

LG Parameter - available for Load Groups only. Defines the extreme type of result to be displayed on each node/element over the load group items.

Extreme settings - available when the expand table type is selected:

Extreme_settings

Detailed - displays an entity Id where the worst result is found. For Load Groups also governing load is displayed:

Detailed_table

Short - displays only extreme values:

short_table

Selection can be defined using Selector Control. Selection Entity Type (Nodal or Elemental) depends on the table result category (displacement, stresses, etc.)

Press to export the table to Excel.

Press to copy the table to the clipboard.

Press to hide nodes with zero result for expand table (only for nodal results, can be used for displacement or reaction force tables).

Press to open the Number Format Settings over result categories.

Press Set Default Title to change the title of the table depending on table parameters.

Press Fill Table to display data in the table.

Flow Table (over loads)

Flow table results are displayed for multiple loads at once. To display Flow Table execute Job - Table - Flow Table (over loads) from the main menu. Alternatively, use the Tables context menu and select Flow Table (over loads).

Flow_Table

The following options for a table should be defined:

Table type - expand (detailed results for each node/element from the selection) or extreme (worst results on selection for each load);

Select Loads using Multiple Load Selector Control:

Category - result category to display results for. Can be nodal (displacement etc.) or elemental (stress etc.)

Expand Options - available when expand table type is selected.

Table_expand_options

Display Type:

Load Results - displays the result on each node/element for all loads;

Min/Max - displays min/max for each node/element for all loads;

Load Results and Min/Max - displays the result min/max for each node/element for all loads.

LG Parameter - defines the extreme type of result to be displayed on each node/element over load group items.

Total Point Type - available for element-nodal types of results. Defines the type of calculation of the total point: minimum, maximum, absolute maximum (AbsMax) or average among all points.

Skip Rows without maximum - do not display loads that do not cause any extreme for a single node/element. In the example table, load sets 1 and 2 and load group 1 will be not displayed if this option is turned on:

Skip_rows_Table

Extreme Options - available when extreme table type is selected. Define the type of extreme to be displayed:

table_extreme_option

Selection can be defined using Selector Control. Selection Entity Type (Nodal or Elemental) depends on the table result category (displacement, stresses, etc.)

Press to export the table to Excel.

Press to copy the table to the clipboard.

Press to open the Number Format Settings over result categories.

Press Set Default Title to change the title of the table depending on table parameters.

Press Fill Table to display data in the table.

Summation Table (over loads)

Summarize results on the selection and display them for multiple loads at once. To display table execute Job - Table - Summation Table (nodal results) - Over Loads from the main menu. Alternatively, use the Tables context menu and select Summarized Forces (over nodes) - Over Loads.

Summation_Table

Summation_Table

Select Loads using Multiple Load Selector Control:

Category - result category to display results for. Can be nodal only (reaction forces, displacement etc.).

Csys - coordinate system created in Femap to transform forces/moments into.

Skip loads without extreme - display only loads which have minimum or maximum at least for one direction.

Note: for load group, minimum and maximum summation will be found over its items.

Selection can be defined using Selector Control.

Press to export the table to Excel.

Press to copy the table to the clipboard.

Press to open the Number Format Settings over result categories.

Press Set Default Title to change the title of the table depending on table parameters.

Press Fill Table to display data in the table.

Summation Table (over selections)

Summarize results on single load and display them for multiple selections at once. To display table execute Job - Table - Summation Table (nodal results) - Over Selections from the main menu. Alternatively, use Tables context menu and select Summation Table (nodal results) - Over Loads.

Summation_Table

Summation_Table_selection

Select Loads using Load Selector Control:

Category - result category to display results for. Can be nodal only (reaction forces, displacement etc.).

Csys - coordinate system created in Femap to transform forces/moments into.

Skip selections without extreme - display only selections which have minimum or maximum at least for one direction.

Note: for load group, minimum and maximum summation will be found over its items.

Selection can be defined using Selection List Control.

Press Set Default Title to change the title of the table depending on table parameters.

Press Fill Table to display data in the table.

Components Extreme Table (over selections)
