# IMPORT

I/O Options and Subcase Information Entry Identifies H3D files.

Identify the H3D files when:
• In Random Response Analysis: The Frequency Response Analysis results can be imported directly to the Random Response Analysis. An additional fatigue subcase can be included in the model to conduct Fatigue Analysis using results from the Random Response Analysis subcase.
• In Submodeling: The displacement results from the global model can be imported and mapped to a local model. An additional fatigue subcase can be included in the model to conduct Fatigue Analysis using results from the local model.
• In Linear Static Analysis followed by Fatigue Analysis: The linear static results from an .h3d file can be imported within a dummy linear static subcase, followed by a Fatigue Analysis subcase which references the dummy linear static subcase.

## Definitions

Argument Options Description
SUB SUBID
Subcase ID
In case of Random Response Analysis, it is the Frequency Response Analysis subcase in the .h3d file to be imported as the result for current subcase. 1

An additional fatigue subcase can be included in the model to conduct Fatigue Analysis using results from the Random Response Analysis subcase.

In case of submodeling, it is the linear static subcase in the .h3d file from which results are to be imported and used for enforcing displacements in the current subcase. 2

An additional fatigue subcase can be included in the model to conduct Fatigue Analysis using results from the local model.

In case of Linear Static Analysis, results are imported from the linear static subcase in the .h3d file and assigned to a dummy linear static subcase. A subsequent Fatigue Analysis subcase can use the results from the Linear Static Analysis for Fatigue Analysis. 7
option <ASSIGN ID>

No default

ID for the assigned .h3d file. ASSIGN, H3DRES is also required to assign the .h3d file with an ASSIGN ID.

## Example 1

ASSIGN, H3DRES, 21, C:\RANDOM\FRA.H3D
SUBCASE       1
ANALYSIS DFREQ
IMPORT(SUB=11) = 21

## Example 2

ASSIGN, H3DRES, 38, C:\static\global.H3D
SUBCASE       1
ANALYSIS NLSTAT
IMPORT = 38
SPC = 3
NLPARM = 7
