#16: Maximum VCG source identification
The MAXVCG command now includes an /ID:"source" parameter, which allows
you to attach an identification to the max VCG curves being generated.
If the next MAXVCG command is /COMPOSITE, this identification is carried
through and will remain attached to any particular point where the
original curve had the lower max VCG. In this way, a final
MAXVCG /LOOKUP report will display the source responsible for each
Max VCG result.
For example, the following commands can be used to generate a set of
composite MAXVCG curves based on three separate curve sets, identified
as "Intact Energy", "Flooded Zone 1", and "Flooded Zone 2":
MAXVCG DISPL: 400 450 ... 700 /LCG: 50 55 60 65 /ID:"%1" %2
.MV "Intact Energy"
.MV "Flooded Zone 1" /COMPOSITE
.MV "Flooded Zone 2" /COMPOSITE
MAXVCG TITLE "Damage and Intact"
.MV "" /LOOKUP
The "Source" column in the final MAXVCG /LOOKUP report would show which of
these three cases provided each minimum max VCG result.
(Note that the INTCRIT and DAMCRIT macros would need to be
previously defined to establish different stability criteria, as would ZONE1
and ZONE2 macros to set certain tanks to flooded or intact conditions.)
In addition, when inputting max VCG information from an external source
(using MAXVCG /EXTERNAL), an identification can be included along with the VCG
by placing it after the VCG number on the same input line.
GHS version 12.52 or later is required to access this feature.
