Analysis entities stores settings and entities for composite stress toolbox calculations.

In the composite stress toolbox, various analyses exist for which a combination of entities and/or additional settings are required. The analysis entity is a container for the necessary selections and allows for storing the analysis setups for easy re-run.

The items in the following table comprise analysis entity data.
