SDC Verifier 2020.0.2 known issues

  • Recognition of Joint in Ansys, when beams include orientation node. 2D joints were recognized as 3D Joints (Ansys); Fixed in 2021 R1 Fixed in 2020.0.2 (Patch)
  • Job was not created when it contains Bolt Pretention load (Ansys); Fixed in 2021 R1
  • Solution was not solved when boundary condition with the same names were created (Simcenter); Fixed in 2021 R1
  • Models with *.afm and *.fem parts were not supported; Fixed in 2021 R1
  • Read results when solution is analyzed on a part of the model (Simcenter 3D). Fixed in 2021 R1

  • Set Full Model in ‘Export Options’ and reanalyze the model:
  • Reduce ‘Result Selection’ to be the same as in ‘Export Options’

Formula should be updated manually:

  • DNV RP C 203 Fatigue. Calculate UF using overall Principal Stress instead of each separately. Fixed in 2021 R1 Fixed in 2020.0.2 (Patch)

Formulas have to be updated manually:

  • Effective Width Tool – Lateral Pressure used shear force in the plane of a plate. Updated to use shear force perpendicular to a plate; Fixed in 2021 R1 Fixed in 2020.0.2 (Patch)
  • DNV 2010 Stiffener Buckling check. Shear force (VSd parameter) was always 0; Fixed in 2021 R1 Fixed in 2020.0.2 (Patch)
  • Eurocode3 Members (EN1993-1-1, 2005). Swapped Y/Z shear resistance for I-shape (Ansys); Fixed in 2021 R1 Fixed in 2020.0.2 (Patch)
  • EN 13001 (2018) – calculate combined damage (formula 41) as maximum from each orthogonal direction plus respective shears instead of summation of all directions; Fixed in 2021 R1

Parameter Fatigue Damage. Replace formula for Equivalent direction in both Fatigue Checks (Direct and Simplified methods):

  • Output Vector table/plot cannot be displayed for custom output vectors with id > 24000000 (Femap 2019 and above). Fixed in 2021 R1
  • Read combined stresses for beams instead of axial stress only (Ansys); Fixed in 2021 R1
  • Contour plot for custom checks – swapped top/bottom results for shells (Ansys); Fixed in 2021 R1 Fixed in 2020.0.2 (Patch)
  • View location and magnification were not stored to the project (Ansys); Fixed in 2021 R1 Fixed in 2020.0.2 (Patch)
