LugCalc Batch Report Function

LugCalc can batch process multiple reports when a batch file is supplied to LugCalc. The batch file will contain all the required information to generate a lug calculation. This function is only available when the user allows LugCalc to automatically calculate K efficiency factors. LugCalc can quickly generate hundreds or thousands of lug reports based upon the input batch file. The two inputs required to use the batch report function are the input batch file and a destination directory for all reports generated. Reports will be generated in the .txt file format with a user specified filename.

Batch File Input

Batch Input File

The batch input file is a .csv file with the following fields. Please download an example LugCalc batch file here. The fields required in the file are:

!#!Filename : The name you want the file saved as ("filename.txt")

PN: Part number

Company: Company name

Description: Lug part description

Location: Location of the lug on the part

Material: Text describing the material (300m, 7075-T6, etc)

Load_Case: Text describing the load case being used

Ftu: Ultimate tensile strength

Fty: Yield tensile strength

Modulus: Modulus of elasticity

Ult_Strain: Elongation percent or strain at ultimate tensile failure

Temperature: Temperature for material properties

Rfbru: Ultimate bearing strength reduction

Rftu: Ultimate tensile strength reduction

Rfbry: Yield bearing strength reduction

Rfty: Yield tensile strength reduction

Bore_Diameter: Diameter of lug bore

Lug_Radius: Outside radius of lug

Lug_Thickness: Thickness of lug

Eccentricity_A: Eccentricity in the axial direction (see figure)

Eccentricity_T: Eccentricity in the tensile direction (see figure)

Alpha: Alpha angle (see figure)

Beta: Beta angle (see figure)

FF: Fitting factor

LF: Load factor

Force_Keyopt: 0 = Load and Angle, 1 = Axial load and Transverse load

P_one: Load or Axial load (keyopt dependent)

P_two: Angle or Transverse load (keyopt dependent)

Units: 0 = imperial, 1 = metric
