8.2  SDT Tabs

This section presents the GUI of SDT, organized as tabs in the sdtroot figure.

8.2.1  Project

The Project tab allows handling the working environment.

This is a 2 column table allowing the definition of the following fields,

The FEMLink tab allows handling model import from external codes.

This is a three column table allowing interactive definition of the fields described below. The second column allows activating specific options.

8.2.3  Mode

The Mode tab allows handling modal computations.

This is a three column tree-table allowing various choices to perform a wide range of modal computations, parametered by the fields below,

8.2.4  TestBas : position test versus FEM

The TestBas tab is used to superpose two meshes. For examples see section 3.1.

This is a tree-table used for mesh superposition. The base mesh is called FEM and the mesh to be placed is called TEST even when you are superposing different things (TEST/TEST, FEM,FEM, ...). The NodePair section uses a strategy providing corresponding points, while the Tune section allows manual tuning of the relative position.

8.2.5  StabD : stabilization diagram

The StabD tab is used create a stabilization diagram with the algorithm LSCF and provide tools to extract poles from it.

This is tab is used for LSCF handling (see section 2.3.2).

8.2.6  Ident : pole tuning

The TabIdent tab is

The upper part is a list of alternate poles on the left and retained poles on the right. The arrows let you move poles and associated shapes from one list to the other.

The lower part as the main sections

8.2.7  MAC : Modal Assurance Criterion display

The MAC tab allows handling display of variants of Modal Assurance Criterion.

This is a three column tree-table allowing various choices to perform a wide range Modal Assurance Criterion variants, parametered by the fields below
