AUI Command Reference Manual: Vol. II — ADINA Thermal Model Definition

Chapter 1 Introduction

Sec. 1.1 Program execution

1. Introduction
This reference manual provides concise descriptions of the command input requirements for the ADINA User Interface (AUI). This introduction serves to give some background information and indicate the general command syntax including descriptions of the conventions used.

1.1 Program execution
Commands can be entered in the following modes: Interactive (a) AUI is running with the user interface displayed – you can enter commands into the user interface command window – see the AUI Users Guide. (b) AUI is running in command mode (using the "-cmd" option) – you can enter commands from standard input. Batch (a) AUI is running with the user interface displayed – you can read commands from a file by choosing File→Batch (UNIX versions) or File→Open (Windows version) – see the AUI Users Guide. (b) Commands can be read from a given file using the aui startup options -s (UNIX versions) or -b (Windows version). You can also read commands from a file using the READ command (see Section 3).

1.2 Command syntax
Here is the layout of a typical command reference page:

COMMAND[1]

PARAM1 PARAM2[2]...

data1i data2i[3]... General description of command function.[4]

ADINA R & D, Inc.

1-3

Chap. 1 Introduction

PARAM1 Description of parameter PARAM1[5]. {<input choices>}[7] PARAM2 Description of parameter PARAM2. ...

[<default>][6]

[<default>] {<input choices>}

[<default>][6] data1i [5] Description of data line entry data1i (ith row, column 1). {<input choices>}[7] data2i [<default>] Description of data line entry data2i (ith row, column 2). {<input choices>} ... Auxiliary commands[8] LIST COMMAND Brief description of this command. DELETE COMMAND Brief description of this command.

Issuing a command allows you to alter the data associated with the command. This data comprises the values associated with the command parameters and possibly a table, input via "data lines", associated with the command. In the above, the command name "COMMAND"[1], given at the top of the reference page, has the first few characters emphasized to show the minimum number of characters required to be input to uniquely identify the command. A list of parameters[2] and data lines[3] for the command then follows. In this list the first few characters in the parameter and data line names are emphasized to show the minimum number of characters required to uniquely identify the parameter and data line names. Following a general outline of the command function[4], a description of the command parameters and data line entries is given below the relevant keynames[5]. The parameters usually have default values[6] which are assumed if the parameter is not explicitly specified. The default values are indicated in brackets [ ] – a bold value indicates a default value (number or string) and an italicized string indicates the source of the default value, which is either (a) a text description of the default, (b) a parameter name from the same

AUI Command Reference Manual: Vol. II — ADINA Thermal Model Definition

Sec. 1.2 Command syntax

command, or (c) a combination of command + parameter names, indicating that the default is taken from the setting of another (different) command parameter. A parameter for which no default is provided means that there is no default – i.e., some choice must be entered for that parameter. One important parameter type is that of an entity identifier – for which the parameter keyname "NAME" is normally reserved. If the object identified by NAME has already been defined, then the other parameter defaults are set to the previous settings for that object. If a new NAME is given then the defaults, as indicated by the command reference pages herein, are taken. In the former case, execution of the command redefines the named object. The choice of parameter values is often discussed within the parameter description, but, where appropriate, a simple list of choices follows the parameter description[7]. For example, parameters with simple logical choices will have the list "{YES/NO}" appended to the description. When a table is associated with the command, the command includes data input lines. For some commands, the table is initially empty, but for other commands the table already includes data lines. The columns of a data line can be divided into two types: key columns and data columns. When a data line has key columns, the key value columns always precede the data value columns. In this case the values of the key columns uniquely identify the data line, and, therefore, two data lines cannot have the same key column values – for such input, the second input data line overwrites the data associated with the key column values. You can delete a data line by preceding the key column values with the DELETE prefix. When a data line does not have key columns, two or more data lines can have the same values – but you cannot use the DELETE prefix to delete data lines without key columns. However, you can always delete all of the data lines of a table using the @CLEAR or CLEAR keywords. This is of course especially useful for those tables in which there are no key columns. For data line input, not all the columns need be specified; the ENTRIES keyword, which can be input as the first data line following the command line, can be used to select a subset of the data column entries (see below). Then the values you enter in the subsequent data lines are associated with the columns indicated by the ENTRIES parameters, the other data columns taking default values whenever possible. Note, however, that key columns are required input, and should thus be included in the ENTRIES column list. Many commands have "auxiliary" commands[8] which are entered with one of the following prefixes:

Chap. 1 Introduction

LIST DELETE UPDATE RESET COPY SET SHOW

List object definitions. Delete objects from the database. Update command defaults. Reset command defaults. Copy objects. Set "currently active" objects. Show "currently active" objects.

A LIST prefixed command has several forms: LIST COMMAND LIST COMMAND LIST COMMAND NAME FIRST LAST List all object identifiers (names). List definition of object with identifier NAME. List definitions of a range of objects with integer label numbers. Parameters FIRST, LAST may also take the string values ‘FIRST’, ‘LAST’, ‘ALL’.

A DELETE prefixed command has the following forms: DELETE COMMAND DELETE COMMAND NAME FIRST LAST Delete the object with identifier NAME. Delete a set of objects with integer label numbers in the specified range.

Note that an object may not be deleted if another model entity depends on its existence as part of its own definition. For example, a geometry line cannot be deleted if it forms a bounding edge of some geometry surface.

1.3 Input details
Command input Please refer to command AUTOMATIC LOAD-DISPLACEMENT in the following discussion (Section 5.5): AUTOMATIC LOAD-DISPLACEMENT POINT DOF DISPLACEMENT ALPHA DISPMAX CONTINUE RPRINT TYPE NODE

When entering commands, only as many characters as necessary to uniquely specify the command name need be entered. The same rule applies to the parameters and data line entry

Sec. 1.3 Input details

key names within a command. The minimum number of characters necessary are indicated in bold. Note that command / parameter is case insensitive. All commands, parameters, values are stored in upper case, except for string variables (headings, graph legends, etc.). Parameter values may be input in any order if the keynames are used, e.g., AUTOMATIC LOAD-DISPLACEMENT DOF=3 RPRINT=YES DISPMAX=5.0 DISPLACEMENT=4.0 POINT=17 Some or all of the parameters can be excluded if the positional order of the parameters is observed, e.g., AUTOMATIC LOAD-DISPLACEMENT 17 3 4.0, ,5.0, ,YES

(the parameters ALPHA and CONTINUE have been omitted by the use of the commas). A mix of keyname parameters and positional input is allowed, e.g., AUTOMATIC LOAD-DISPLACEMENT 17 DISPLACEMENT=4.0 DOF=3,,5.0,, YES The above uses of the AUTOMATIC LOAD-DISPLACEMENT command are all equivalent. The omitted parameters in each case take the default values. Data lines Many commands require data line (tabular) input, e.g., MODAL-DAMPING (see Section 5.3): MODAL-DAMPING modei factori Use the ENTRIES keyword to select only the data columns that you want to enter (the other data columns will be given default values): MODAL-DAMPING ENTRIES MODE FACTOR 1 1.0 2 0.5 3 2.5 4 1.5 DATAEND Most commands which take this form of input also allow for incremental row generation via the "STEP inc TO" option where "inc" represents an increment in the generation, i.e., in the above

ADINA R & D, Inc.

1-7

Chap. 1 Introduction

example modei+k, modei+2k, ..., modej-k, are all generated, with the corresponding values for "factor" linearly interpolated between factori and factorj. When generating integer values, the difference between the first and last values must be an integer multiple of the STEP increment (i.e., modulo((modej-modei),k) = 0). There is a default step increment, which for integer values is normally 1; in this case "STEP 1 TO" may be input simply as "TO". Here are some examples: MODAL-DAMPING 1 5.5 TO 3 7.5 @ or MODAL-DAMPING 1 5.5 STEP 1 TO 3 7.5 DATAEND Both of these are equivalent to MODAL-DAMPING 1 5.5 2 6.5 3 7.5 @ Note that data line input may be terminated either by entering the symbol "@" or the string "DATAEND" – data line input will be terminated automatically by input of the next command. Data line rows can be deleted by preceding the key value by the prefix DELETE. This method of deletion also supports row "generation" – i.e., "DELETE i STEP k TO j" may be used to delete a range of values. All the data lines associated with a command may be deleted simultaneously using the CLEAR or @CLEAR keywords. This is useful when you want to define a table if you do not know if the table is already defined or not: TIMEFUNCTION 1 CLEAR which removes all the currently defined data lines of timefunction 1. The columns for data line input can be selected by use of the keyword ENTRIES in the first input data line following the command line, e.g.,

Sec. 1.3 Input details

COORDINATES POINT ENTRIES NAME Y Z which indicates that only global Y and Z coordinates are to be input for geometry points in the subsequent data lines. The X coordinate assumes the default value 0.0, and thus subsequent data lines entered describe points in the global Y-Z plane. Names AUI names are usually of two types – alphanumeric strings of up to 30 characters or integer label numbers. Integer label numbers are normally greater than or equal to 1. Integer values Integers can be input with a maximum of 9 significant digits. For positive values, a preceding + sign may, if desired, be input. Real values Specification of real values can include a decimal point and/or an exponent. The exponent must be preceded by the letters E, e, D, or d, e.g., 2E5 2.0d+05 200000. all refer to the same real number. Alphanumeric values Alphanumeric values must start with a letter (A-Z, a-z) or number (0-9). The only permissible characters allowed are the letters A-Z, a-z, the digits 0 to 9, the hyphen (-), and the underscore (_). Lower-case characters in an alphanumeric value are always converted to upper-case by the AUI. String values A string should be enclosed by apostrophes ('). Any apostrophe within the string must be entered twice. Any character can be included in a string. Lower-case characters in a string value are not converted to upper-case. Filenames A filename should be enclosed by apostrophes ('). Filenames can be up to 256 characters long. Length of input lines Input lines to the AUI can each contain up to 256 characters. Line continuation, line separator, blanks, and commas If the last non-blank character of a command or data line is a comma (,), then the command or

Chap. 1 Introduction

data is continued on the next input line. The total length of an input line and all of its continuations can be up to 2000 characters. A slash (/) in an input line can be used to end a command or data input line; more commands or data can then be entered on the same input line. A blank, several blanks, <Tab> characters, a comma, or a comma surrounded by blanks act as delimiters. Commands, parameter keynames and values must be separated by delimiters. Comments Comment lines can appear anywhere in the input and are identified by an asterisk (*) in column 1, e.g., * This is a comment line Parameter substitution You can define parameters as numeric expressions, and use the parameter values in later commands. This feature is useful when creating batch files used in structural optimization. For example: PARAMETER A `5 + 7` PARAMETER B `2*A` PARAMETER C `3 + A + 4*B` BODY BLOCK DX1=$A DX2=$B DX3=$C

1.4 Messages
Commands will often echo messages confirming their successful completion, or provide other information. Otherwise you may get error/warning messages with varying levels of severity: *** INPUT ERROR You have entered an unacceptable parameter value or data. The command will not execute with invalid input. *** WARNING The command has completed, but has detected a possible inconsistency which may have to be resolved. *** ALERT The command has completed, but has detected a definite modeling inconsistency which has to be resolved in order to create a valid model. *** ERROR The command has not completed.
1-10 AUI Command Reference Manual: Vol. II — ADINA Thermal Model Definition

Sec. 1.5 File input/output

*** INTERNAL ERROR The program has determined some conflict in the database, normally indicating a software bug. You should contact ADINA R & D Inc. if you encounter such a message. In order to track down the source of the problem it would be most useful if the input responsible for this condition is made available to the support engineers. *** MEMORY OVERFLOW The command has not completed, due to the program running out of memory. Increse the memory allocation to the program

1.5 File input/output
The AUI uses several files for handling I/O. Here is a brief description of some of them, together with a suggested filename extension convention (for the UNIX operating system – other filename conventions may be appropriate for other operating systems) : <file>.in <file>.idb <file>.plot <file>.pdb <file>.ses <file>.ps <file>.dat <file>.port <file>.out ADINA-IN batch command input. ADINA-IN permanent database. ADINA-PLOT batch command input. ADINA-PLOT permanent database. AUI session file (echo of command input). PostScript snapshot. Analysis data. Analysis porthole. Analysis printout.

See the AUI Users Guide, Chapter 6 for more information.

1.6 The AUI database
The AUI uses an internal database to store and retrieve data used during program execution. The internal database is stored in main memory and, if main memory is not sufficient, a temporary database file is created to hold the excess data. The internal database can be saved in a disk file, called a permanent database file, so that it can be retrieved in a future run. Five commands are used to create, open and save databases. DATABASE NEW creates a new empty internal database. DATABASE OPEN initializes the internal database using a specified permanent database file. DATABASE SAVE saves the internal database to disk, allowing you to specify the name of the database file. DATABASE ATTACH causes the AUI to use the specified permanent database file as the internal database. DATABASE DETACH renames the internal database file as a permanent database file. All of these commands are described in Section 3.1.

ADINA R & D, Inc.

1-11

Chap. 1 Introduction

The permanent database file is similar to a text file used in a word processing program. Like the text file, the permanent database file resides on disk and can be retrieved by the program in a future run. The permanent database file can be saved on disk periodically during program execution to protect against loss of data due to computer failure. During each save operation, a different permanent database file can be selected so that several versions of the database are available for retrieval. (This is similar to saving several versions of a text file on disk when working with a word processing program.) For the differences between DATABASE OPEN and DATABASE ATTACH, see the command description for DATABASE ATTACH. For the differences between DATABASE SAVE and DATABASE DETACH, see the command description for DATABASE DETACH.

1.7 Listings
Many AUI commands generate lists. For example, the ZONELIST command (see The AUI Command Reference Manual, Volume IV) lists the values of variables. You can also specify whether listings are to be sent to your terminal or to a disk file (see the FILELIST command). When the listings are sent to your terminal, you are prompted by --More--( %) after each screen of the listing. The number printed before the percent sign represents the percentage of the file that has been displayed so far. Responses to this prompt are as follows: <return> <space bar> <i><space bar> D or d <i>D or <i>d <i>Z or <i>z <i>S or <i>s <i>F or <i>f <i>B or <i>b Q or q = . Display another line of the listing. Display another screenful of the listing. Display i more lines. Display the next half-screen (a scroll) of the listing. Set the number of lines in the scroll to i and display the next scroll. Set the number of lines in each screen to i and display the next screen. Skip i lines and print a screenful of lines. Skip i screenfuls and print a screenful of lines. Skip back i screenfuls and print a screenful of lines. Stop the listing. Print the current line number in the listing. Repeat the last prompt response.

In these responses, <i> represents an optional integer argument, defaulting to 1. If you are familiar with the UNIX operating system, you will recognize that the above options correspond closely to the options of the 'more' command.

Sec. 1.8 Units

1.8 Units
In model definition no particular unit system is assumed. Any consistent unit system may be adopted. Certain thermodynamic constants do, however, have a choice of temperature unit system (Celsius/Centigrade/Kelvin, Fahrenheit/Rankine).

1.9 Tips for writing batch files
Increasing execution speed: The AUI contains features that are useful when you enter commands using the dialog boxes, but are not useful when you read commands from a batch file. These features are activated by default. You can deactivate the features to increase the speed at which batch files are processed, and to reduce the memory requirements of the AUI. The features are Undo/redo storage: Command CONTROL UNDO=-1 turns off storage for undo/redo information. Automatic model rebuilding: Command CONTROL AUTOMREBUILD=NO turns off automatic model rebuilding. Session file creation: Command FILESESSION NO turns off creation of the session file. Storage of session file information in the database: To turn off this feature, use the command CONTROL SESSIONSTORAGE=NO. Stopping after an error or memory overflow is detected: Command CONTROL ERRORACTION=SKIP activate a feature that AUI skips the remaining commands in a batch file after an error or memory overflow is detected. Summary: Use the following commands to perform all of the above actions: FILESESSION NO CONTROL UNDO=-1 AUTOMREBUILD=NO SESSIONSTORAGE=NO, ERRORACTION=SKIP

DATABASE ATTACH

Sec. 3.1 Database operations

DATABASE ATTACH FILE DATABASE ATTACH allows access to the specified file as an AUI database file. Unlike DATABASE OPEN, DATABASE ATTACH does not make a working copy of the database file prior to opening it. Instead you work directly with the specified file as you use the AUI, possibly modifying the file's contents. The advantages of DATABASE ATTACH as compared to DATABASE OPEN are: disk requirements are reduced because the AUI does not create a copy of the database file, and the CPU time to attach a database is much less than the CPU time required to open the same file. The disadvantages of DATABASE ATTACH are: (1) important information can be inadvertently modified or deleted from an attached database file, (2) the attached database cannot shrink, but can only grow as the AUI is used and (3) an attached database file cannot be saved, but can only be detached using DATABASE DETACH. Before DATABASE ATTACH can be used, any current database must first be saved, and then DATABASE CREATE or DATABASE NEW must be used to create a new database. DATABASE ATTACH can be used only if the current database is new and unmodified. Exiting the AUI when a database is attached causes the database to automatically detach. FILE The filename of the permanent database file to be attached. If no file name is entered, the AUI will prompt you for the filename.

DATABASE DETACH

DATABASE DETACH PERMFILE PROMPT DATABASE DETACH creates a permanent database file by detaching the working copy of the database file. Unlike DATABASE SAVE, DATABASE DETACH does not create a new permanent database file. The advantages of DATABASE DETACH as compared to DATABASE SAVE are: disk requirements are reduced because the AUI does not create a copy of the database file, and the CPU time to detach a database is much less than the CPU time required to save it. The disadvantage of DATABASE DETACH is the AUI does not compress the database file by removing unused records. After the database is detached, the AUI creates a new empty internal database. A database can be detached at any time whether or not it was attached using DATABASE ATTACH. PERMFILE The working copy of the database file is renamed to PERMFILE. PROMPT [UNKNOWN] Used when saving a permanent database file. YES You will be prompted "Ready to save permanent database file?".

The LOADSOLID command loads a Parasolid7 part (or "transmit") file into the database. The model can be displayed, meshed, and loads, boundary conditions may be assigned to its faces, edges, and vertices. For each body within the Parasolid7 file a solid geometry BODY is created which is used to reference that body. This command is only active when ADINA-M has been licensed. PARTFILE The name of a Parasolid7 part file (i.e., for part file name "abcdef.x_t" you input PARTFILE=abcdef). BODYNAME [(current highest body label number) + 1] This is the label number to be assigned to the first BODY to be created which is used to refer to the first body in the part file -- other bodies in the part file will automatically be assigned BODY label numbers incremented from this parameter (i.e., (BODYNAME+1), (BODYNAME+2), ... .)

Note: Parameter definitions and values are not stored in the database. NAME The name of the parameter (1 to 30 alphanumeric characters). The name is not case sensitive. If the parameter is not already defined, a new parameter is created, otherwise the existing parameter is modified. EXPRESSION A string (up to 256 characters long) that contains a numeric expression.

All trigonometric functions operate on or return angles in radians. Examples PARAMETER PARAMETER PARAMETER A B C '3.0' '5 + 7' '6 * \ 5 ' // A = 3 // B = 12 // The string can be entered on several // command lines as in this example; C = 30

Parameter substitution When the command-line parser finds a token value that starts with a $, the parser finds the parameter name with that token value and substitutes the parameter value. For example, in the commands PARAMETER X1 '2.0/3.0' PARAMETER X2 'SQRT(5.0)' PARAMETER X3 'SIN(2.0)' BODY BLOCK DX1=$X1 DX2=$X2

DX3=$X3

the parser looks for the values of X1, X2 and X3 and substitutes the values (e.g., the characters '0.666666666666667') for the names (e.g., the characters 'X1'). Hence the above commands are exactly equivalent to the command BODY BLOCK DX1=0.666666666666667 DX3=0.909297426825682 DX2=2.23606797749979,

The token values need not be in upper-case: BODY BLOCK DX1=$x1 DX2=$x2 DX3=$x3

Parameter substitution occurs before command execution, so the following is allowed: PARAMETER PARAMETER A A '2.0' '$A + 1'

// A = 3

Now you may want to put the symbol $ into a string without parameter substitution occuring. The rule is: if the next character after the $ is a letter [a-z], the command-line parser attempts parameter substitution. So

CONTROL defines certain parameters that control program behavior. The parameters defined by the CONTROL command are stored in the database. PLOTUNIT <not currently active> VERBOSE <not currently active> ERRORLIMIT <not currently active> LOGLIMIT <not currently active> [PERCENT] [YES] [0] [0]

UNDO [5] The UNDO parameter controls the number of commands that can be undone using the UNDO command. If UNDO = 0, the UNDO command cannot be used, if UNDO = 1, UNDO can be used to undo the effects of the previous command, if UNDO = 2, UNDO can be used to undo the effects of the previous two commands, etc. Setting UNDO = 0 can significantly speed up the processing of batch files. PROMPT [UNKNOWN] Controls the default behavior for prompts which may arise from various commands. NO No command prompts will be issued - this is useful in batch mode - eliminating any interaction. Command prompts are always issued. Command prompts are issued only when necessary.

YES UNKNOWN

AUTOREPAINT [YES] When AUTOREPAINT = YES, the AUI automatically repaints that area of the graphics window that is exposed to the removal or motion of overlapping windows or dialogs. You may want to set AUTOREPAINT to NO to suppress the repainting; in that case, you can use the REFRESH command whenever you want to repaint the graphics window. DRAWMATTACH [YES] When DRAWMATTACH = YES, mesh plot attachments (band plots, load plots, element vector plots, reaction plots, line contour plots) are drawn. Otherwise, they are not drawn.
ADINA R & D, Inc. 4-3

CONTROL

One use of this option would be to turn off drawing of mesh plot attachments before moving the mesh plots with the mouse. DRAWTEXT DRAWLINES DRAWFILLS These options control the drawing of text, lines and fills: EXACT SATURATED GRAY INVERSE Use the requested colors while drawing. Convert all colors to saturated colors before drawing. Convert all colors to gray scales before drawing. Convert all colors to the INVERSE color before drawing (the INVERSE color is the opposite of the background color). Do not draw. [EXACT] [EXACT] [EXACT]

NO

AUTOMREBUILD [YES] When you enter a command that alters the geometry or finite element model, the AUI rebuilds all corresponding data structures so that the model can be re-plotted. This feature can be deactivated by setting AUTOMREBUILD = NO (in this case, if you want to plot the model, you must use the ADINA, ADINA-T or ADINA-F commands to rebuild the model beforehand). Setting AUTOMREBUILD = NO can significantly speed up the processing of batch files. Notes : 1) One important use of parameters DRAWTEXT, DRAWLINES, DRAWFILLS is when making plots in black and white for reports. In this case you might use DRAWTEXT = INVERSE, DRAWLINES = INVERSE, DRAWFILLS = GRAY. 2) The drawing parameters apply both to graphics as displayed on the screen and to graphics as produced using SNAPSHOT or MOVIESAVE. 3) One use of DRAWFILLS = SATURATED is to speed up shaded color image drawing, especially using X Window graphics; all shades of each color are converted to the same color, resulting in significantly fewer color changes.

ZONECOPY [NO] Controls whether the commands BANDPLOT, MESHPLOT, ELINEPLOT, EVECTORPLOT, LCPLOT, REACTIONPLOT, BANDSTYLE, MESHSTYLE, ELINESTYLE, EVECTORSTYLE, LCSTYLE, REACTIONSTYLE create copies of the input zones. Zone copies are always created by these commands in AUI 7.0 but not in later versions of the AUI. The preferred

setting of ZONECOPY is NO, but YES may be necessary to read input/session files produced for/by AUI 7.0. {YES/NO} SWEEPCOINCIDE [YES] Controls whether the SURFACE/VOLUME REVOLVED/EXTRUDED geometry definition commands check for coincident lines and surfaces, as well as for coincident vertices (points). AUI 7.0 did not attempt to connect adjacent surfaces/volumes, resulting in duplicate lines and surfaces fro such “sweep” geometry definition. The default in AUI 7.1 and higher is to connect adjacent surfaces/volumes whenever possible. However, AUI 7.0 input/session files which contain such “sweep” geometry will likely fail, so it may well be necessary to set SWEEPCOINCIDE=NO to correctly process older input files. {YES/NO} SESSIONSTORAGE [YES] If SESSIONSTORAGE = YES, the subsequent commands are stored in the AUI database. You can output these commands using the command COMMANDFILE. In the event of a system crash, you can retrieve these commands by opening the AUI temporary database, and subsequently issuing the COMMANDFILE command. If SESSIONSTORAGE = NO, subsequent commands are not stored in the AUI database and therefore cannot be retrieved. You may wish to set SESSIONSTORAGE = NO before reading commands from a batch file to eliminate the overhead of storing those commands within the AUI database. Note that the storage of commands in the AUI database is independent of the writing of commands to the session file determined by command FILESESSION. DYNAMICTRANSFORM [YES] Controls how the program indicates the transformation when you move, resize or rotate graphics using the mouse. If DYNAMICTRANSFORM=YES, the program redraws all picked graphics completely and redraws all other graphics that overlap the picked graphics. If DYNAMICTRANSFORM=PARTIAL, the program partially redraws all picked graphics and does not redraw overlapping graphics. If DYNAMICTRANSFORM=NO, the program indicates the transformation using a bounding box. UPDATETHICKNESS [YES] When you change the thickness of geometry surfaces or faces, all elements generated onto the surfaces or faces are automatically updated with the updated thickness. {YES/NO} In AUI 7.2 and lower, elements are not automatically updated. Therefore you may need to set UPDATETHICKNESS=NO so that input files constructed for use with AUI 7.2 and lower work correctly.

AUTOREGENERATE [NO] If AUTOREGENERATE=YES, the program regenerates the graphics after you run a command that changes the model definition. This parameter only applies to commands that are run from the command-line (or read from a file); it does not apply to dialog box input from the user interface. Note that the user interface always regenerates the graphics after you use a dialog box that changes the model definition. {YES/NO} ERRORACTION [CONTINUE] Defines AUI action when error is detected.

Sec. 5.4 Automatic control

AUTOMATIC TIME-STEPPING MAXSUBD ACCURACY TEMPTOL AUTOMATIC TIME-STEPPING defines parameters controlling the automatic time-stepping procedure for an ADINA-T analysis, whereby timesteps are subdivided in the event of convergence failure within a prescribed number of equilibrium iterations. The automatic time-stepping procedure is enabled when the command parameter MASTER AUTOMATIC = ATS is specified. When enabled, this procedure will cause ADINA-T to subdivide the timestep when no iteration convergence is reached in the solution (see ITERATION and TOLERANCES), or the accuracy criterion (for transient analysis) is not satisfied. MAXSUBD [10] The maximum permitted subdivision of any given timestep, i.e., for a timestep of magnitude ∆T, then the algorithm will not attempt to subdivide below a timestep of magnitude (∆T/2MAXSUBD). ACCURACY Flag checking of solution accuracy for transient analysis. [NO] {YES / NO} [0.1]

TOLERANCES GEOMETRIC

TOLERANCES GEOMETRIC

COINCIDENCE EPSILON SHELL-ANGLE BOLTANGLE PHI-ANGLE EMF-DMIN

TOLERANCES GEOMETRIC specifies certain geometric tolerances used during the construction of a model. COINCIDENCE [1.0E-5] Relative tolerance used when comparing two locations to see if they are coincident. The default value is usually sufficient for most models, but may be, for example, reduced if distinct locations are extremely close in comparison to the overall dimension of the model. EPSILON [1.0E-9] A small value representing zero in many geometry property tests. This value is not normally required to be changed from the default value. SHELL-ANGLE [5.0] A small angular measure, in degrees, used in comparing normal vectors to determine the number of degrees of freedom to be automatically assigned to a shell midsurface node at which several shell elements meet. BOLT-ANGLE [0.5] A small angular measure, in degrees, used in comparing shell element normal vectors to determine whether any impinging beam bolt elements give rise to additional constraints relating the rotational degree of freedom normal to the shell surface to adjacent translational degrees of freedom. If a shell element normal differs from the average normal at a node by more than BOLT-ANGLE degrees, then no additional bolt constraints will be generated. PHI-ANGLE [30] This parameter, in degrees, is used only in potential-based fluid element models, during the phi model completion phase of constructing the ADINA data file. It is used in constructing the boundary conditions for a node on a free surface that is adjacent to the structure. When the angle between two adjacent faces of the structural boundary is greater than PHI-ANGLE, the AUI treats the intersection of the faces as a sharp corner. When the angle between two adjacent faces of the structural boundary is less than or equal to PHI-ANGLE, the AUI considers the faces to approximate a smooth boundary. EMF-DMIN [0.001] Specifies minmum distance between two electric conductors. If the distance between two conducting nodes in the model is less than EMF-DMIN, EMF-DMIN will be used.

PPROCESS

PPROCESS NPROC MINEL MAXEL PPROCESS specifies control data for parallel processing solutions. It allows for the splitting up of element groups into smaller sub-groups, i.e., the model is partitioned for distributed solution. NPROC [0] Number of processors used. Equivalently, the number of subgroups generated for each element group. NPROC = 0 indicates single processor solution (equivalent to NPROC = 1), in which case this command has no effect - EGCONTROL may be used to effect group splitting in this case. MINEL [0] Each element group with MINEL or more elements can be split into subgroups. Element groups with fewer than MINEL elements are not split. (MINEL = 0 is equivalent to MINEL = (10 C NPROC)). MAXEL [999999] Each element group (with MINEL or more elements) is split into I C NPROC subgroups, where the multiplier I is chosen so that each subgroup contains no more than MAXEL elements.

MODE = 1 The arc defined is circular only if P1 and P2 are equidistant from CENTER – otherwise an arc is defined in which the radius is linearly interpolated across the included angle. The points P1, P2, and CENTER must not be collinear. The included angle is always chosen to be less than 180 degrees – thus a different mode should be used if a semi-circle or an arc subtending an angle greater than 180 degrees is required. No other geometry points are required; the chord length, included angle, and radius (for a circular arc) are calculated. MODE = 2 The arc is defined to pass through the intermediate point P3. A point at the center of the arc is generated. Parameter CENTER may be used to specify the label number of a newly generated point – it defaults to the next highest label number. If so specified, however, CENTER must not be the label number of an existing geometry point. Furthermore, if PCOINCIDE = YES and a geometry point already exists at the arc center – the coincidence check is governed by the tolerance value PTOLERANCE – then that geometry point will be taken to be the center of the arc, ignoring any label specified via parameter CENTER. The points P1, P2, and P3 must not be collinear. MODE = 3 The plane of the arc is defined by the points P1, CENTER, and P3, which must not be collinear. Furthermore, ANGLE is measured positive in the direction from P1 to P3. A point at the end of the arc is generated. Parameter P2 may be used to specify the label number of a newly generated point – it defaults to the next highest label number. If so specified, however, P2 must not be the label number of an existing geometry point. Furthermore, if PCOINCIDE = YES and a geometry point already exists at the end of the arc – the coincidence check is governed by the tolerance value PTOLERANCE – then that geometry point will be taken to be the end of the arc, ignoring any label specified via parameter P2. MODE = 4 The plane of the arc is defined by the points P1, CENTER, and P3, which must not be collinear. Furthermore, the end point of the arc is taken to be the same side of the line between the points P1 and CENTER as the point P3. A point at the end of the arc is generated – see MODE = 3.

If two adjacent edges are specified, then a unique connecting edge is searched for to form a triangular surface patch. If two opposite edges (EDGE1 and EDGE3, or EDGE2 and EDGE4) are specified then the missing two edges are searched for to form a quadrilateral surface patch, unless the given edges are connected, in which case a single connecting edge is searched for to yield a triangular surface patch. If three edges are specified, then a unique connecting edge is searched for, unless the three edges by virtue of their connection already form a triangular surface patch.

Input of surface thickness is given as a constant thickness together with deviations from that value at each of the vertices. Thus the thickness at vertex1 = thick + dthick1. To input constant surface thicknesses, only the first two entries on the data line input need be entered (since the default deviations are zero). To input varying surface thickness you could enter a constant thickness of 0.0 and set the deviations to the vertex thicknesses, or use some median thickness with non-zero deviations.

Note:

Thickness is measured in the direction of the normal vector at the vertex, determined by the right-hand rule in relation to the ordering of the surface vertices.

After having obtained a “discrete boundary representation” (“discrete brep” in short) of a body with the command BODY-DISCREP, this command enables the modification of the “discrete brep”. The actual (geometric) body is never modified. The meshing is limited to 4/ 10/11-node tetrahedral elements. The main purpose of this command is the removal of “small” features which can be of the “boss” type (protrusion) or the “cut” type (may extend to being a hole). The secondary purpose is the removal of surface triangles (on the “discrete brep”) that have either a “small” length or height. NAME Body label.

Sec. 6.6 Solid models

when the frontier of the domain is convex. It has to be used when the feature is a hole (whose frontiers should be convex). With REMESH1, the normals used to remesh the domain come from the (boundary discrete brepresentation) faces inside the domain. With REMESH2, the normals used come from the faces immediately adjacent to the domain. COARSEN the body faces in the domain defined by DOMREMV are removed using a coarsening algorithm that is incremental. It cannot be used when the feature is a hole.

ANGLE [30.0] This is the angle in degrees used when using the incremental coarsening algorithm. The larger the angle, the more surface triangles can be removed but the more deformed the “discrete brep” will be. When attempting to remove a feature using the COARSEN option, it is recommended to set the ANGLE to 180.0 so that the feature can be completely removed. {0.0 ≤ ANGLE ≤ 180.0} SPREAD [YES] Determines whether the removal of surface triangles in the “discrete brep” extends to other surfaces triangles outside the feature indicated by DOMREMV. {YES/NO} NO the command only attempts to remove surface triangles that are below SIZE or that make up a feature (as indicated by DOMREMV). Other surface triangles will not be modified. the command may also modify other surface triangles if necessary.

YES Notes:

If a DOMREMV domain is given, the command will only attempt to remove the surface triangles associated with the domain. The SIZE parameter is then only used to spread (see SPREAD parameter). If no DOMREMV domain is given, the command will attempt to remove all surface triangles whose dimensions (shortest length or height) are below SIZE.

NODES [8] The number of nodes per element. {3 / 4 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 16} For elements adjacent to the edges of the geometry surface, the end nodes of each element edge are generated on the geometry surface edge. See Figures. PATTERN [AUTOMATIC] Selects the type of pattern used to further subdivide quadrilateral surface cell subdivisions. Allowable values for PATTERN are integer numbers 0 through 11, or the string value AUTOMATIC. PATTERN=1 to 9 is allowed for triangular elements (NODES=3, 6, 7) and PATTERN=10, 11 is allowed only for NODES=4. See Figure. NCOINCIDE Selects the method of nodal coincidence checking. [BOUNDARIES]

Coincidence checking is used to determine whether to place a new node at a geometric location when there is already at least one node close to that geometric location. A node at (XB,YB,ZB) is close to a geometric location (XA,YA,ZA) if |XB - XA| ≤ NCTOLERANCE*XLEN |YB - YA| ≤ NCTOLERANCE*YLEN |ZB - ZA| ≤ NCTOLERANCE*ZLEN where NCTOLERANCE is a parameter of this command and (XLEN,YLEN,ZLEN) are the lengths of the bounding box for the model before generation. If there is no bounding box, then XLEN,YLEN,ZLEN are taken as (1.0,1.0,1.0). If there are no nodes close to that geometric location, a new node is placed at that geometric location. Otherwise parameter NCOINCIDE governs whether a new node is placed at that geometric location, or whether a close node is used instead, as shown in the following table:

Coincidence checking is used to determine whether to place a new node at a geometric location when there is already at least one node close to that geometric location.
