BL Card: Boundary Loading (Mass)
Card Description: Used to assign mass loading on the boundary.
0, C 1-2
Card group identifier.
0, C 3
Card type identifier.
Specifies Option 1: The mass boundary loading in
data field 2 and 3 of this card will be used for all
values (J) equal to or greater than ISTART.
Specifies Option 2: The mass boundary loading are
coded by element number.
Specifies Option 3: The mass boundary loading are
coded by material type number (IMAT).
Code the node number, element number or material
type as specified by IC3 above in data field 0,
Option 1 and 2: The starting element number.
Will load all the elements that are ≥ISTART.
Option 3: The element material type number.
Will load all the elements which satisfy the material
Mass loading at ISTART=J.
Units: Total mass/sec in the appropriate units of the simulation.
EXAMPLE: To calculate total mass contribution (kg) from a BLE boundary
specification in kg/sec:
(LOAD kg/sec) x (#Elem Loaded) x (#TimeSteps) x (deltaT hr) x (60 min/hr) x (60
sec/min) = MASS in kg
