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.
Import a group of 2D DIAGRAMs that will highlight edge conditions.
plate2.ccl found in the folder with the other tutorial files.
Now import a second 2D group of DIAGRAMs for the display of concentrated loads.
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.
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.
Now associate DIAGRAMs with the loads TABBED PANE.
Check your work.
The window should look something like this:
Congratulations! With the completion of Practical Session 4, you have now completed the visible GUI portion of your EASAP. Next up will be coupling the EASAP to the underlying software, and then you will create a report as your EASAP output.
