Pressures

Pressures are loads applied to plates. Each pressure is an object contained within the pressures object. Each pressure inside the pressures object should be identified by a unique positive integer.

Input Type Description
pressures Type Each pressure is defined by an object with properties. Pressures are defined by the plate ID they are applied to, the reference axes, magnitude, and load group.

Pressure Properties Type Value Description
plate_id Number - Plate where the pressure is applied. Identified by the plate ID.
axes String - Specify either "global" or "local" to assign which axes are to be used to apply the pressure load.
x_mag Number Pressure Magnitude of pressure in x direction, dependant on local or global axes setting.
y_mag Number Pressure Magnitude of pressure in y direction, dependant on local or global axes setting.
z_mag Number Pressure Magnitude of pressure in z direction, dependant on local or global axes setting.
load_group Number - The load group which the load belongs.

Example

{
    "pressures": {
        "1": {
            "plate_id": 1,
            "axes": "global",
            "x_mag": 0,
            "y_mag": -20,
            "z_mag": 0,
            "load_group": 3
        }
    }
