Output for Structural Analyses
The Output tab on the dialog boxes for static, prestress static, modal, prestress modal, and buckling analyses has the following items:
• Calculate—Specifies the quantities to be calculated.
• Plotting Grid—Specifies the density of the grid that determines where results are to be calculated.
• Output Steps—Specifies output load steps. This area is available on the
Output tab of the
Static Analysis Definition dialog box only if the
Nonlinear / Use Load Histories check box is selected.

You cannot define load histories for an analysis of a model that does not contain any nonlinearities.
