StructuralCurveEdge

Internal edge

Internal edge (StructuralCurveEdge) is an object within a 2D Member (StructuralSurfaceMember) on which the line force (StructuralCurveAction) can act. StructuralCurveEdge can be placed on StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion, but the relation is always to 2D member (StructuralSurfaceMember) where StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion is placed.
If StructuralCurveEdge does not geometrically fit to the StructuralSurfaceMember it is assigned to, it is considered a logically invalid input. Cases like this one have to be solved by validation during the import of excel data to the specific software. The validation has to be implemented together with the import/export of SAF.

Specification in the excel

Name of the column header
Type of data
Value example or enum definition
Required value
Description
Name
String
IE1
yes
Human readable unique name of the internal edge
2D member
String
S2
yes
The name of the StructuralSurfaceMember (plate, wall) on which the internal edge is placed
Nodes
String
N1; N2
yes
All nodes that belong to the curve edge and define its geometric shape.
The names of the nodes are separated by ; (semicolon) and space.
The order of the nodes has to be from beginning to end.
Segments
String
Line; Circular Arc; Bezier; Parabolic arc; Spline
yes
Defines the shape of the curve between two next nodes.
Supported strings are:
Line; Circular Arc; Bezier; Parabolic arc; Spline. The names are separated by ; (semicolon) and space.
Internal edge consisting of multiple segments follows rule defined in Geometry
Parent ID
String
67b35d84-3d04-47aa-aa4a-dc1263982320
no
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.
