The next step is to look at the model materials and adjust the material.
For this simulation, we only make a minor material change using materials that are fully defined.
Before you perform simulations, ensure that your material definitions are complete for those materials being analyzed. When a material is not completely or inadequately defined, a warning message displays in the Status folder in the browser. You cannot run a simulation until you change the material.
NoteYou cannot edit a material if the project setting Use Styles Library is set to Read-Only. To change the setting requires exiting the tutorial. In this tutorial, we use a material that is already fully defined. You can modify the other materials at a later time.
In the browser, expand the Beams folder, and select Beam:1. Right-click and select Beam Materials. In the Beam Material dialog box, select the beam (DIN U 200 00000001.ipt) in the Beams area.
Beam Material dialog box is also accessible when you click Material
on the Beams panel in the ribbon.
- Check the Customize box.
NoteThe Customize check box is only available when the parent beam is selected.
- In the drop-down menu in the Material area, select Stainless Steel, Austenitic.
- Click OK to exit the Beam Material dialog box.
The browser Materials folder receives a Stainless Steel, Austenitic - DIN U 200 00000001.ipt folder added with all the components referencing that material listed within that folder. If you delete individual components from the folder, their material reverts to the assembly assigned material.
