Boundary conditions in RTM are comprised of two entities:
|•||a load collector card image that defines the boundary|
|•||a component collector to store the boundary faces.|
The Boundary Condition Editor opens when you click the Create/Edit BC button under Boundary Conditions on the RTM Utility menu. The RTM Boundary Conditions Setup menu is displayed. The procedure for creating boundary conditions involves these steps:
|1.||Create a new boundary condition by selecting its name, type, and color.|
|2.||Edit the boundary condition data and fill in all the required parameters.|
|3.||Assign this boundary condition to specific faces, by selecting the elements, nodes, and break angle.|
The Boundary Condition Editor walks you through these steps.
