Job – the calculation set that contains loads and their combinations to be calculated with the defined calculation options.

The Job supports static analysis, buckling analysis and custom analysis (run predefined analysis in Femap for Individual Loads defined in SDC Verifier and imported results). The Job consists of the following components:

Add Job

To add a new job execute Job - Add from the main menu. The following dialog will be displayed:


If Automatically create Individual Loads from FEM Loads and Constraints is checked then Individual Loads for the calculations (see the chapter Individual Loads ) will be created from the combinations of all FEM Loads and all Constraints.

Automatically create Individual Loads From Output Sets will create the Individual Loads from all existing results (see the chapter Individual Loads ) by one result per load.

To set Nastran options for Analysis press Define...


General Solver Options are used by Linear Static and Linear Buckling analysis. The rest options are related to the Linear Buckling analysis.

Request Results allows defining what category of results has to be analyzed. By default, Displacement, Stress, Applied, Reaction, Element Force and Force Balance are requested.

Analysis Selection - defines on what elements the analysis will be run;

Results Selection - the elements for which the results have to be read. If only the portion of the model has to be checked - reduction of the result selection to that portion will improve memory usage and calculation performance;

Solid Stress/Strain - read centroid or corner results for solid elements;

Plate Stress/Strain - read centroid or corner results for plate elements;

By default, all loads are included in the Analysis. Execute Job - Select Loads to be Analyzed from the main menu to change the included loads in analysis:

Jobs select for analysis | SDC Verifier

Note: If more than one job is created in a project - it is required to select the job before the loads


To analyze multiple Jobs / Standards execute Job - Analyze from the main menu:


Skip Analyzed Jobs - analyzed jobs (all Individual Loads have results) will be skipped.

Skip Jobs and Standards with Results - loads with results won't be recalculated (if the option Skip Analyzed Jobs is checked);

Job of Jobs

The job of jobs is a special job to create load combinations based on individual loads from other jobs and envelopes based on loads from other jobs.

To create Job of jobs execute Job - Add Job of Jobs from the main menu and select referenced Jobs:


It is not possible to create Individual Loads in Job of Jobs, only referenced Individual Loads can be combined in Load Sets:

Note: Analyze command for Job of jobs will run the analysis for all referenced jobs.
