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 (imported results from Femap). The Job consists of the following components:

Add Job

To add job execute in main menu Job - Add....

Alternatively, execute Job - Add from context 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 )will be created from the combinations of all FEM Loads and all Constraints.

To set Nastran options for Analysis press Define...

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

Requested Results allows to define what category of results has to be analyzed. By default, Displacement, Stress, Applied, Reactions Force and Element Force are requested.

An analysis selection defines on what elements the analysis will be run.

A results selection - the elements for which the results have to be read.

To analyse an active Job press on a toolbar:

To analyse the selected Job:

It is possible to exclude individual loads from analysis.

By default, all loads are included in the Analysis. Press Select Loads to be Analyzed to edit the list:

Note: Load Sets will be included only for the Buckling Analysis type.
