8.8.2021 - Fixing flaws in SAF spec v1.0.9 and v2.0.0

Following changes were done based on the proposal discussed in this discussion and changed in this issue.

  • StructuralSurfaceActionDistri (SAF 1.0.9)

    • Object renamed from StructuralSurfaceActionDistribution to StructuralSurfaceActionDistri. Original name exceeds the allowed number of characters for the name of an excel sheet.

  • StructuralSurfaceAction (SAF 1.0.9)

    • added new column: “2D member distribution” - reference to StructuralSurfaceActionDistri

    • added new column: “Force action” - enum defining on which object is load applies (On 2D member, On 2D member region, On 2D member distribution)

    • change of a rule: “2D member column” required only if Force action = “On 2D member”

  • StructuralCurveAction (SAF 2.0.0)

    • new column added for reference: “2D member region” - reference to StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion

    • new column added for reference: “2D member opening” - reference to StructuralSurfaceMemberOpening

  • StructuralCurveMoment (SAF 2.0.0)

    • new column added for reference: “2D member region” - reference to StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion

    • new column added for reference: “2D member opening” - reference to StructuralSurfaceMemberOpening

  • StructuralEdgeConnection (SAF 2.0.0)
