Enforced Displacements in Combined Load Cases aren't Scalable

Genius

I've got some enforced displacements in a normal load case, and then have included them with a factor of 2.0 in a combined load case. However, this factor is not applied to the enforced displacements - they still show the same final displacements (i.e. factor of 1.0) in the results at those nodes.

 

Is this intentional? How does one scale enforced displacements in FEMAP?

 

We're still on v11.2.0.

The SPCD (enforced displ) entry from the NX Nastran Quick Ref Guide (remark 5) suggests it will not combine. NX Nastran sees it as a type of special constraint.

Did Femap not give a red message?

Thank you.

No red message on solve.
