What’s New in SDC Verifier 2022 R1

 

New Features and improvements

  • Support of Ansys 2022 R1, Femap 2022.1, Simcenter 3D 2022.1.
  • Added Wave Load and Wave Coefficients (Ansys).
  • Rainflow Counting:
    • Weld Stresses category added;
    • Added variables to use results of the tool in checks.
  • Tapered Beam Tool to refine mesh of tapered beams (Femap).

  • Wind Load:
    • Option to use Local or Model drag coefficients;
    • Import drag coefficients to model from the local wind;
    • Apply wind with drag coefficients from another wind;
    • Warning if drag coefficients of wind are not the same as on the model;
    • Local drag coefficient table in Report.
  • Moment Ratio Tool:
    • Added option to calculate results using principal moments;
    • Added variables in checks to use results based on principal moments.
  • Report Designer:
    • Possibility to keep current report structure when switching to another type of report structure;
    • Option to save/load generated report items in the project file (items content is kept after the re-opening report, no need to re-generate report).
  • Removed ‘Beta’ from the standards:
    • AIJ-2017 (2005 Edition). Design Standard for Steel Structures ̿Based on Allowable Stress Concept;
    • Eurocode3 Bolts (EN 1993-1-8, 2005) Design of steel structures – Part 1-8: Design of joints;
    • Eurocode3 Connections (EN 1993-1-8, 2005) Design of steel structures – Part 1-8: Design of joints;
    • ASME B31.8 (2018) Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems.
  • Apply values of the Input (Constants, Characteristics, Classifications, Standard Tables) of one standard to identical standard;
  • Export Load Combinations to ‘CSV’ file to be used for Solution Combination in Mechanical (Ansys).
  • Link Analyses to Jobs if they do not exist in Ansys Mechanical (e.g., open project between different Mechanical models).
  • Display chart on selected rows/columns in Standard Table.
  • Open Expand/Extreme Table on selected governing load in Governing Load Tool.
  • Reduced amount of plugins to 2 instead of having separate plugins for each version.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed formula of Alpha_cr parameter in Eurocode3 Plate Buckling (EN 1993-1-5, 2006) standard to handle zero directional stresses.
  • Unit system was not taken into account in Eurocode3 Bolts (EN 1993-1-8, 2005) standard that leaded to scaled utilization factor.
  • Fixed formulas to return 12345678 value for Second-Order Effect if multiplier B1 is negative in AISC 360-10 Members (14th, 2010) and AISC ASD 89 (9th, 1989) standards.
  • Results of Checks were not automatically cleared after modifying Classification.
  • Moment Shear Force tool modified nodes coordinates inside SDC Verifier when using origin offset option.
  • Different Classification plot colors and label values in the main window and report.
  • Views list was not stored to project file for Constraint item in Report Designer.
  • Nodal results (e.g., Displacement) were not calculated if the model was not up to date. Added message to update the model.
