# Create Events

Combine channels and subcases to create events.

## Create Time Series Events

- $${\sigma}_{ij}(t)$$
- Results stress tensor at time t
- $${\sigma}_{ij.FEA}$$
- Stress tensor from static analysis
- $$P(t)$$
- The y point value of load-time history at time t

## Event Configuration: Superposition

- $\left({\sigma}_{ij}\left(t\right)\right)event$
- Superposed stress tensor for the entire fatigue event, as a function of time t.
- $l$
- The subcase and load history pair defined in the event, the number of pairs in an event varies from one to n.
- ${\left({\sigma}_{i{j}^{FEA}}\right)}_{l}$
- Stress tensor from static analysis
- $LD{M}^{}$
- Magnitude used to scale the finite element stresses
- $P{\left(t\right)}_{l}$
- Point in load history at time t
- ${\left(Scale\right)}_{l}$
- Scale factor applied to the load or time history. It is ignored in fatigue analysis based on a transient analysis subcase.
- ${\left(Offset\right)}_{l}$
- Offset applied to the load or time history. It is ignored in fatigue analyses based on a transient analysis subcase or if the event configuration is sequential.

## Event Configuration: Sequential

If Sequential flag is selected in an event, all subcases referenced in that event are
applied sequentially, instead of simultaneously. The resulting stress history is
generated by the subcases present in the event, each subcase is considered
sequential at different time points. i.e. subcase_{1} at t_{1},
subcase_{2} at t_{2}, etc

- ${\sigma}_{{i}_{j}}\left(t\right)$
- Stress tensor for the fatigue load, as a function of time t
- ${\sigma}_{i{j}^{FEA}}$
- Stress tensor from static analysis
- $LD{M}^{}$
- Magnitude used to scale the finite element stresses

## Create Duty Cycle Events

- Duty Cycle file (*.dcy)
- HyperLife LoadMap file (*.xml)

## DCY File

Duty Cycle is supported for all fatigue calculations with a Time Series loading type.

## XML File

LoadMap file (*.xml) is supported for the following loading types: Time Series, Transient Response, Modal Superposition, Random (PSD Stresses), Random (Input PSD with FRF), and Sine Sweep.

## Create Transient Response Events

## Create Modal Superposition Events

Modal subcases are supported for SN (uniaxial, multiaxial) and EN (uniaxial, multiaxial) fatigue calculations with a Modal Superposition loading type.

- $${\sigma}_{ij}(t)$$
- Stress history for the given time interval of an element
- $${P}_{k}(t)$$
- Participation factor per mode at time
`t`(via mrf/pch file) - $${\sigma}_{ij,k}$$
- Modal stress of an element per mode (via an h3d or
op2 file)Note: op2 files are only supported for mrf channels. h3d is supported for both mrf and pch.
- $$k$$
- Mode

## Create Random (PSD Stresses) Events

Random Response subcases are supported for SN (uniaxial) and EN (uniaxial) fatigue calculations with a Random (PSD Stresses) loading type.

## Create Random (Input PSD with FRF) Events

- If Mean Stress correction is to be applied, a static subcase, if present in the result file, will be listed in the Subcase window and can be drag and dropped onto the event (no channel is required to be paired).
- Any events that you create are specific to the channel type. If you switch the channel type, the events window is cleared/updated.

## Create Sine Sweep Events

Frequency Response Function subcases are supported for SN (uniaxial) and EN (uniaxial) fatigue calculations with a Sine Sweep loading type.
