Subcase Information Entry The P2GSUB command is used in a specific subcase to select a direct input load matrix.


P2GSUB = factor*name (column index)


P2GSUB = 2.5*PAZ(3)


Argument Description
factor Optional scale factor.

Default = 1.0 <Real>

name Name of a load matrix that is input in the Bulk Data section using the DMIG card.
column index Optional column index value.

Default = 1 < Integer > 0 >


  1. Terms are added to the load matrix before any constraints are applied.
  2. The DMIG matrix must be rectangular (columnar), that is field 4 on the referenced DMIG entry must contain the integer 9.
  3. A scale factor may be applied to this input using the CP2 parameter (PARAM Bulk Data Entry).
  4. By default, gravity and centrifugal loads are not generated based on the external mass matrix (M2GG). In this case, gravity and centrifugal loads should be included in generating the reduced loads in the DMIG.
  5. Only one name may be specified on each P2GSUB entry. Multiple P2GSUB entries may be used inside a single subcase section to combine multiple DMIG entries (or to combine multiple columns from the same DMIG).
  6. The P2GSUB statement cannot be specified above the first SUBCASE.
