# Custom Standard

Standard is a set of checks and items to perform calculations according to formulas and rules.

To add Custom Standard execute

from the main menu.Standard contains:

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

from the Standard context menu:## 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:

- add a new item;

- paste titles/aliases from the clipboard. Spaces in alias will be removed automatically;

- edit the selected item;

- remove selected items;

- import already existing classification type from existing standards:

Select standard, standard type and press OK to create new standard type.

- export all types to the existing custom standards. If type already exists it will be skipped:

## Characteristics

SDC Verifier allows adding extra properties called Characteristics to use them in Standard check formulas. There are four types of characteristics: Material, Property, Elemental and Load.

To add Characteristics use the

context menu:All characteristic types can be created by additional subtypes that are taken from the

list. is a default type, apply numeric value to elements.#### Add Material/Property Characteristic:

Import dialog box:

If Beam Member data is selected then it is required to select the direction from the list:

Note: For weld finders, only the groups with 0 values will be created.

## Classification

Classification is an extra element characteristic that can be set over directions.

To add classification select type in classification

menu item:**Types**. Different standards have their own predefined classifications.
For example, DIN 15018 Standard predefined classifications are Element group, Weld Type and Material Type.

Set classification Alias to use it in Custom check formulas.

- add classification condition;

- edit selected condition;

- copy selected conditions;

- remove selected conditions;

- move selected conditions up;

- move selected conditions down.

Note: The first condition cannot be modified, moved, copied or removed.

- highlight selected condition elements;

- select direction to plot classification values;

Note: Values are calculated condition by condition. If the same element is a part of different conditions - the last condition value is taken. If the element does not belong to any condition - the value from the fist condition is taken.

- select welds from Weld Finder and add a list of conditions with empty classification (one weld one condition).

#### Classification Condition

Classification condition is applied to the selected directions of the selected elements.

Define Selection to be used in the condition.

One condition - set the value to the selected directions;

Multiple conditions - select the value for each direction separately. The directions with the same values will be grouped in one condition. Other values will form different conditions.

Use

, , buttons to operate with selected directions.## Standard Tables

Standard Table is a two-dimensional matrix of static values.

To add Standard Table press Add in Standard Tables context menu:

The following window for parameters setting will be displayed:

Set table Alias to use it in Custom check formulas.

Set count of rows and columns and press

to build the table.– paste full table from the clipboard.

– paste values from clipboard to cells starting from top left selected cell.

Note: To cut the table set less value for a row or a column count.

It is possible to define a row and a column Headers based on the Types List

### 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

### Common Commands

To edit parameter press . The dialog box will appear where it is possible to select the necessary parameter to edit.

To remove parameters press . The dialog box will appear where it is possible to select the necessary parameters to remove.

Category defines how parameter will be represented in the table (Number Format) and what Legend Settings will be applied.

E.g. Utilization Factor by default has a general format with 2 digits after the dot:

Press to move parameters:

### 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 available variables of formulas are collected in the Items

### Adding Items

To add a necessary item (all except Results Variables and Check Parameters) press the corresponding button on the Items dialog box. The dialog window appears:

To Add Check Parameter press . The dialog window will be shown:

Only standards with ID ≤ current standard ID will be displayed in the list.

Checks are filtered according to the selected check type (e.g. Plate Buckling check can use results only from other Plate Buckling check.) or Load Calculation type (e.g. Custom check cannot use results from Fatigue Summation check).

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.).

Calculate Results over Directions - optional;

## Plate/Stiffener Buckling

The Plate/Stiffener Buckling is used to perform plate buckling calculations with user-defined formulas.

It is very similar to the Custom Check. The major difference is that it is calculated on the section and results presented for the Sections and Plates/Stiffeners. Parameters of plate/stiffener buckling are calculating only for one direction and can use additional variables in formulas: Element Stress (Minimum compression or average) converted into plate direction and Plate dimensions.
