Dynamic Time Analysis
You can use a dynamic time analysis to examine the system’s transient response to time-varying loads.
For a description of, and requirements of a dynamic time analysis see Dynamic Time Analysis Overview.
The Dynamic Time Analysis Definition dialog box includes the following items:
Loading—Select Load Functions or Base Excitation.
Load Functions—To use Load Functions, you must have defined loads in your model. If you select Load Functions, The following items are available under Loading:
Sum Load Sets—Combines the effects of the selected load sets into a single load set.
Load Set / Component—Allows you to select the load sets you want to use in your analysis. Click to create load set functions for each load set or use the default functions.
Base Excitation—You can use Base Excitation only if you reference a constrained modal analysis in your dynamic analysis.
Base Acceleration Time Dependence—Specifies the direction of motion of the supports and the base acceleration as a function of time when you select Base Excitation as the type of loading.
The following tabs appear on the dialog box for a dynamic time analysis:
