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; Circle and Point; Circle by 3 points. 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
39f238a5-01d0-45cf-a2eb-958170fd4f39
no
Unique attribute designation
