Estimated completion time → 60 minutes.
Please follow the instructions below to complete this session.
Let’s look at the files that will help you diagnose problems you may encounter getting an EASAP to run properly.
Note, Not all messages captured in the standard error diagnostic files such as err1-runplate.txt will be errors that need to be eliminated. Often software applications send other types of messages to the standard error stream.
If the input file does not look like the one above and you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, then contact your instructor or EASA support representative. At this point, you may need to either go back to the EASAP Builder window and make changes to your EASAP or make modifications to your template plate.txt file in the text editor. You will then resubmit the EASAP for another test. Iterate in this way until the DORs in the plate.txt file get replaced properly and a valid PLATE.OUT file is produced.
At this point, we have successfully completed an EASAP run.
If the report does not appear correctly, please contact your instructor or EASA support representative for assistance. Again, you may need to go back to the EASAP Builder window and make changes to your EASAP based on suggestions from the EASA support person. This time you will NOT have to resubmit the EASAP for another test. You just need to save your changes in EASAP Builder, click on the View Results button () in the Output column and click the ‘Regenerate report’ link to see an updated report. Iterate in this way until the report appears as expected.
This TABBED PANE should then look like the following
We will go back to our plate EASAP and modify it to generate parametric runs.
We now add a PARAMETRIC RANGE to the INPUTBOX's input_W, input_L and input_t.
The first TABBED PANE window should now look like this
Notice the symbols () to the right of the INPUTBOX's within the ‘Plate Dimensions’ SUB PANE box indicating the ability to set up parametric ranges for these inputs.
Let's update EASA→Results to include parametric output.
|Parameter Name||Parameter Value|
|Title:||Maximum Plate Displacement|
Perform a parametric test of the modified EASAP.
It should look like this
In this pane, we can see a table which displays each expected run and their corresponding Width and Length values. Note that when using multiple parametric ranges, it is important to ensure that each list of values is the same length.
After a second or two a pop-up window should appear when the EASAP has been submitted successfully.
Once completed, the output presented when you click on this link will look like the following
We can view the individual reports by clicking on the Results icons.
Once we have completed a review of the parametric study results, we publish a new release of the EASAP.
Congratulations! Our new EASAP has been deployed to other EASA Users.
