Subcase Information Entry The K2PP command can be used to select a direct input stiffness matrix, which is not included in normal modes.


K2PP = name


Argument Description
name Name of a stiffness matrix that is input in the Bulk Data section using the DMIG card.


  1. DMIG matrices will not be used unless selected in the Subcase Information section.
  2. The matrix selected applies to all subcases.
  3. K2PP matrices are used only in dynamic response problems. They are not used in normal modes.
  4. When multiple instances of this card occur, the referenced DMIG entries are combined. This behavior differs from that of Nastran, which only recognizes the last instance of this card in the same situation.
