StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion

Region of different plate thickness

This object defines particular areas of the StructuralSurfaceMember with different thicknesses.

Specification in the excel:

Name of the column header

Type of data

Value example or enum definition

Required value

Description

Name

String

R1

yes

Human readable unique name of the object

Material

String

MAT_1

yes

The name reference to the existing, valid name of the StructuralMaterial object.

Thickness [mm]

Double

200

yes

The thickness of the StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion Thickness is considered in total.

System plane at

Enum

Bottom

Centre

Top

yes

Defines position of the system plane (local x and y-axis) of the StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion and determines the alignment of the region. Top: the StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion is aligned with the top surface of the StructuralSurfaceMember, Bottom: it is aligned with the bottom surface.

2D Member

String

S13

yes

The name of the StructuralSurfaceMember to which is the region situated.

Nodes

String

N81; N263; N659; N660

yes

All nodes that belong to StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion and define its geometric shape. The names of the nodes are separated by ; (semicolon) and space.

Edges

String

Line; Line; Line; Line

yes

Defines shape of the curve between two next nodes. Supported strings are: Line; Bezier; Circular Arc; Parabolic arc; Spline. The names are separated by ; (semicolon) and space.

Eccentricity ez [mm]

Double

-125

yes

The eccentricity of the slab may be input. Eccentricity is measured from the system plane – local x and y-axis and the direction is in local z-axis.

Area [m2]

Double

1.485

no

The value of the surface area of the StructuralSurfaceMemberRegion

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.

Id

String

no

Unique attribute designation
