Ranking Method Example

Consider the example of the query setting shown below.

Figure 1.
The output displays as:

Figure 2.

In this case, the top five combinations among nodes and loadcases are shown based on the sorting on maximum displacement X.

For ranking a combination is made of:
  • Node | Loadcase
  • Element | Loadcase
  • Element | Loadcase | Layer
  • Element | Loadcase | Corner (no average)
  • Element | Loadcase | Layer | Corner (no average)
  • Node | Loadcase | Layer (when average is applied to change binding from element to node)

Ranking entities can be repeated several times, as shown in the example above, where node 13212 is found at rank two, three and four from loadcase one, three and four, respectively.
