Practical Session 4: More Diagramming

Estimated completion time = 30 minutes.

In this practical session, you will create a diagram for representing the plate’s edge conditions and the loads being applied. The figure below provides a view of how your EASAP should look at the end of this session.

Please follow the instructions below to complete this practical session. Again, detailed information on the objects created in this session can be found at the Author's Pages.

  • Click on our ‘Rectangular Plate Loading Analysis’ EASAP in EASA→Application→My EASAPs

  • Right-click on plate1 DIAGRAM and click on the Import button (), and then select and open the file plate2.ccl found in the folder with the other tutorial files.
  • Right-click plate1 and select Paste (Sibling) () to add the imported object named plate2 to the tree

Now import a second 2D group of DIAGRAMs for the display of concentrated loads.

  • With plate2 selected, import the file loads1.ccl from your tutorial files folder and then Paste (Sibling).

An object named loads1 should appear on the tree

Now import a third 2D group of DIAGRAMs again for the display of concentrated loads.

  • With loads1 selected, import the file loads2.ccl from your tutorial files folder and then Paste (Sibling).

An object named loads2 should appear on the tree

Now associate the 2D DIAGRAM plate2 with a TABBED PANE.

  • Expand the TABBED PANE LIST and select edges.
  • Click in the Diagram: parameter value box, select plate2 on the pop-up form and click OK

Now associate DIAGRAMs with the loads TABBED PANE.

  • Select loads, and then click in the Diagram: parameter value box, click on plate2, loads1, loads2 in the pop-up form and click OK.
