Individual Load

Individual Load types

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

  • Individual Load for Calculation - has a boundary condition and will be calculated during analysis. The boundary condition can be set by Fem Load and Constraint or Fem Load Only. In second case the Inertia Relief option during the analysis will be used (INREL option).
  • From Existing Results based on Output Sets (it is not linked to any FEM Load and Constraint). This type of load is skipped during the analysis.

To create Individual Loads, execute Job - Individual Load - Add...


The following workplane will be displayed:


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:


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 Outputs Sets per Load.

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

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

The equivalent (Von Mises) stress is calculated by the following formula:

Imports Results

To import the Output Sets into the Individual Loads execute Individual Loads - Import Results from the context menu:

Output Set column displays the Output Set attached to the load or "-" if the load does not have results. To add output set, click and to remove.

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 amount of available output sets all items will be selected automatically.


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


Output Set 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 the all loads press Remove All Output Sets.

Safety Factors

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


To change multiple safety factors execute Individual Loads - Safety Factors...


Set Safety Factor value and press Set to selected button. Factors will be changed for the selected loads in the list. Press OK to apply the changes.
