I/O Options and Subcase Information Entry The REQUEST command can be used in the I/O Options or Subcase Information sections to select a multibody request definition to be used in a multibody problem.


REQUEST = option


Argument Options Description
option <SID>

No default

Set identification of MBREQE or MBREQM Bulk Data Entries.


  1. Only one REQUEST entry can be present for each subcase.
  2. This Subcase Information Entry is only valid when it appears in a multibody subcase.
  3. If the SID referenced by the REQUEST Subcase Information Entry matches with the SID defined for an MBREQ Bulk Data Entry, the information on this entry alone is selected. However, if a MBREQ Bulk Data Entry does not have the referenced SID defined, any of the multibody motion entries: MBREQE or MBREQM which have this SID will be selected.
  4. If present above the first subcase, it is applied to each multibody dynamics subcase without a REQUEST entry.
