The thermal load on the surface elements (StructuralSurfaceMember). The variation of the thermal load can be constant or linear over the cross-section of the beam.
Name of the column header
Type of data
Value example or enum definition
Human readable unique name of the load
Specifies how the temperature varies
Constant: The load is defined by means of a single value T1. The value specifies the change in temperature of the 2D member (straight ΔT). Temperature change is constant along the cross-section.
Linear: The load is defined by means of a set of two values T1 and T2. The individual values specify the temperature at individual surfaces - top, bottom of the 2D member.
Specifies the first size of the load in Celsius/Fahrenheit.
For constant: Delta temperature on the center plane
For linear: Temperature of top surface (LCS direction +z) of 2D member
yes, if Variation = Linear
Specifies the second size of the load in Celsius/Fahrenheit.
For linear: Temperature of bottom surface (LCS direction -z) of 2D member
2D Member Region
yes, if on region
The name of the StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion to which is the surface action related if it is available on 2D member.
The name of the load case to which the load belongs
Is filled for objects created be dividing curved geometry to series of straight line objects. Parent ID will ensure that curved edge is imported as straight parts to nonsupporting application, and back to original supporting application as curved geometry.
To ensure successful round trip of segmented objects and their related objects, Parent ID needs to be present in both directions.
