Launch STWAVE Command

After a simulation has been read or saved, SMS can launch the finite element analysis engine. To run STWAVE:

  1. Right-click on the STWAVE simulation and select Launch STWAVE or Save, Export, and Launch STWAVE. The Simulation Run Queue dialog appears showing the engine that will execute.
    • If the executable program is the wrong version, or if given the message that it was not found, then click the file browser icon and choose the correct version of the program that should run.
  2. When STWAVE has finished, the solution can be added to the project by clicking the Load Solution button.

The Simulation Run Queue window will appear which displays various information as STWAVE runs. Normally it is not necessary to type anything in this window. Using the Simulation Run Queue multiple simulations can run at the same time.
