SDC Verifier 2021 R1 known issues

  • Mechanical crashes on some models when reading results for beam elements if Beam Section result is turned on (Ansys) – fixed by 2021 R1 patch; Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • Highlighting and plotting performance was improved on models with lot of bodies (Ansys) – fixed by 2021 R1 patch; Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • FKM (6th, 2010) – “Stress Ratio” parameter in checks “3..Fatigue (constant amplitude stress spectrum)” and “4..Fatigue (variable amplitude stress spectrum)” is out of the range [-1; 1] for situations where minimum weld stress is higher in absolute value than a maximum weld stress.

Formulas in both checks should be updated manually:

  • Eurocode3 Members (EN1993-1-1, 2005) – “Limit3 Web” parameter in check “11..Classification” returns always 0.

Formula should be updated manually:

  • Eurocode3 Members (EN1993-1-1, 2005) – Flange Class and consequently Cross Section Class calculations for RHS used too conservative approach – fixed by 2021 R1 patch; Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • Peak Finder – table is not added after Peak Finder is edited. – Fixed in 2021 R1.1.;
  • Weld Finder – welds are recognized again if “Keep all modified” or “Keep all existing” action is selected when recognizing welds. This leads to doubled weld intersections as welds become with the same elements. – Fixed in 2021 R1.1.;
  • FKM (6th, 2010) – “Equivalent degree of utilization_Non welded” parameter in “2..Static Stress Check” contains division on 0 for welded parts that results in a high utilization factor.

Formula should be updated manually:

  • Plate Buckling Module – Beam Buckling Module was required to open the project – fixed by 2021 R1 patch; Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • Incorrect linking of result files for some loads in SDC Verifier projects that contain more than 10 Jobs. – fixed by 2021 R1 patch; Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • Failed to read Strain results for all modes (Ansys). – fixed by 2021 R1 patch; Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • Failed to recognize welds in Weld Finder tool on model contacts with shell elements that include midside nodes (Ansys). – fixed by 2021 R1 patch; Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • Failed to calculate Global Plate stresses for Load Groups. Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • Results were not cleared in Joint Check according to ISO 19902 (1st, 2007) after factors (Gamm R,q and Gamma R,j) had been changed in the settings. Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
  • Joint Finder – failed to recognize fixed joints for constraints in case constraint included same nodes. Fixed in 2021 R1.1.
