Dear imechanica users,
I have decided to learn how to use .ses and .pcl files in Patran to simplify repeatable operations.
In my problem, I would like to consider several beams of the same length, loading/BC conditions etc. but with different cross-section dimensions.
In order to make my calculations fully automatic, I have parametrized both width and height of the cross sections (as REAL a,b) and created nested FOR loops to obtain 20 different designs.
