Bulk Data Entry Defines the phase lead term θ in the equation of the dynamic loading function. DPHASE is used in conjunction with RLOAD1 and RLOAD2 entries.

Field Contents SI Unit Example
SID Identification number.

No default (Integer > 0)

P1, P2 Grid or scalar point identification number.

No default (Integer > 0)

C1, C2 Component number.

No default (Integers 1 through 6, or 0 for scalar points)

TH1, TH2 Phase lead θ in degrees.

No default (Real)


  1. One or two dynamic load phase lead terms may be defined on a single entry.
  2. SID must be referenced on a RLOAD1 or RLOAD2 entry for the formula that define how the phase lead θ is used.
  3. A DAREA entry should be used to define a load at P# and C#.
  4. 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).
  5. This card is represented as a constraint load in HyperMesh.
