  2. The following options are ignored when defined in //SUBMODEL:
    #RADIOSS STARTER
    #ENDDATA
    /DEF_SHELL
    /DEF_SOLID
    /DEFAULT/INTER
    TYPE2, TYPE7, TYPE11, TYPE19, TYPE25
    /ANALY
    /IOFLAG
    /END
    /ANIM/VERS
  3. The keyword //ENDSUB is mandatory at the end of the submodel block.
  4. The units and version of Radioss submodel can be specified either by /BEGIN card (recommended) or by Vers_number and unit_ID in the //SUBMODEL line. If they are defined in both places, the units and version defined in the /BEGIN card inside the //SUBMODEL are used instead of the Vers_number and unit_ID defined in the //SUBMODEL line.
  5. Available Vers_number values:
    Invers
    Radioss Format / Version
    V90
    Can be used from 9.0
    V100
    Can be used from 10.0
    V110
    Can be used from 11.0
    V120
    Can be used from 12.0
    V130
    Can be used from 13.0
    V140
    Can be used from 14.0
    V2017
    Can be used from 2017
    V2018
    Can be used from 2018
    V2019
    Can be used from 2019
    V2020
    Can be used from 2020
    V2021
    Can be used from 2021
    V2022
    Can be used from 2022 (current format)
  6. Radioss Starter gives an error when two or more /BEGIN cards are specified inside the submodel.
  7. If the version of the input deck inside the submodel is not defined, the format is assumed to be the same as the one defined in the card /BEGIN in the main model.
  8. Material LAW29, LAW30, LAW31 and USERIJ can be used in the //SUBMODEL if the unit system of the //SUBMODEL is the same as the main file.
  9. //SUBMODEL supports hierarchy so a //SUBMODEL can be defined inside another //SUBMODEL. However, unit_ID and Vers_number are not available when a //SUBMODEL is defined inside another //SUBMODEL.
  10. When using hierarchy of //SUBMODEL, the input version of //SUBMODEL should be the current version of Radioss.
  11. If referencing an entity ID, such as node ID or part ID, in the Engine file, the entity ID must include the //SUBMODEL ID offsets.
