AddCyclicSymmetryRestraint Method (ICWLoadsAndRestraintsManager)

Adds a cyclic symmetry restraint.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function AddCyclicSymmetryRestraint( _
   ByVal FirstFace As System.Object, _
   ByVal SecondFace As System.Object, _
   ByVal Axis As System.Object, _
   ByRef ErrorCode As System.Integer _
) As CWRestraint
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICWLoadsAndRestraintsManager
Dim FirstFace As System.Object
Dim SecondFace As System.Object
Dim Axis As System.Object
Dim ErrorCode As System.Integer
Dim value As CWRestraint
value = instance.AddCyclicSymmetryRestraint(FirstFace, SecondFace, Axis, ErrorCode)
CWRestraint AddCyclicSymmetryRestraint( 
   System.object FirstFace,
   System.object SecondFace,
   System.object Axis,
   out System.int ErrorCode
CWRestraint^ AddCyclicSymmetryRestraint( 
&   System.Object^ FirstFace,
&   System.Object^ SecondFace,
&   System.Object^ Axis,
&   [Out] System.int ErrorCode


First face (see Remarks)
Second face (see Remarks)
Axis of revolution (see Remarks)
Error code as defined in swsCyclicRestraintError_e

Return Value




The cyclic symmetry fixture is appropriate for turbines, fans, flywheels, and motor rotors. FirstFace and SecondFace are the faces of a cut section of a model that can be repeated in a cyclical pattern about Axis. The angle between FirstFace and SecondFace should be evenly divisible by 360. You cannot apply a cyclic symmetry restraint to an invalid section. See the Creating Valid Sections for Cyclic Symmetry topic in the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Helps for more information.

This method is valid only for static and nonlinear studies.
