The purpose of creating the section is to understand how the force waves travel around a section. The sections at different components give a broad idea of peak force generated at a particular instant of time. This tool is very handy and helpful in understanding in-depth the simulation results. Some of the options available in the section menu are discussed below.

DeltaT is the time to start saving the sectional forces data. The unit of DeltaT is ‘s’. A minimum value of 0.1 must be inputted in the place of deltaT only then the forces at the sections are properly captured and saved. This option can also be interpreted as the time to activate the capturing of the section’s force results.

**Step 1**

Open the section option using the solver > create > SECT > SECT option

**Step 2**

Now let's create a moving frame for the section. To create a moving frame, Solver > Create > Frame > Mov

**Step 3**

Let's get back to the already created cross-section. Select the origin node, X-axis direction and XY plane. This can be created based on the global coordinate system.

**Step 4**

In the SECT option, First, select the frame that is already created and assign it to the section

**Step 5**

Select the required shell elements using the grshel_id option. Right-click on it > create > in the new dialog box select the required elements by clicking on the entity id as elements.

The reason is to cover the whole area of the component properly.

**Step 6**

Enter the values for Isave, deltaT and alpha.

And Voila, you have created the section. Now to obtain the results from the section, create an output block. Select the entity as a cross-section and select the above-created cross-section.

Reynold's law of Similarity

The Reynolds number represents the ratio of inertial to viscous forces and is a convenient parameter for predicting whether a flow condition will be laminar or turbulent. It is defined as the product of the characteristic length and the characteristic velocity divided by the kinematic viscosity.
