The counter at the bottom of the input data editor is used to record number of stresses and temperatures entered.
One special case is that for 6-component stresses method, every 6 components are counted as one stress.
The counter helps to track consistency of data entered in different tabs. It is mandatory that numbers of stresses under all active tabs are equal.
For temperature data entry, if Temperature History option is chosen as shown below, the number of temperatures must be equal to the number of stresses. For Constant Temperature option, only one value is required.
