Field Contents SI Unit Example
Gi Grid or scalar point identification numbers.

No default (Integer > 0)

Ci Component numbers.

(Integer zero or blank for scalar points, or up to 6 unique digits (0 < integer ≤ 6) may be placed in the field with no embedded blanks for grid points. The components refer to the coordinate system referenced by the grid points.)


  1. Refer to Direct Matrix Input in the User Guide for more information on the use of this card.
  2. A fatal error will be issued if the input contains ASET or ASET1, but PARAM,EXTOUT is not given.
  3. When the SPSYNTAX setting on the SYSSETTING I/O Option is set to CHECK (default) or STRICT, it is required for grid/component pairs (G#/C#) that the component be 0 or blank when the grid reference is a scalar point (SPOINT), and that the component be > 1 when the grid reference is a structural grid point (GRID). When SPSYNTAX is set to MIXED, it is allowed for grid/component pairs (G#/C#) that the grid reference be either a scalar point (SPOINT) or a structural grid point (GRID) when the component is 0, 1 or blank; interpreting all of these as 0 for scalar points and as 1 for structural grids. When the component is greater than 1, the grid reference must always be a structural grid (GRID).
  4. This card is represented as a constraint load in HyperMesh.
