Dynamic Shock Analysis
Dynamic shock analysis measures the response of a system to a response spectrum. The load input is a base excitation with a response spectrum of either displacement, velocity, or acceleration. Dynamic shock analysis is not used for impulsive loads that vary with respect to time.
In a dynamic shock analysis, Creo Simulate calculates maximum values of displacements and stresses in your model in response to a base excitation with a specified response spectrum.
Use dynamic shock analysis if you are interested in subjecting your model to earthquake-like motion. Do not use this analysis type for impulse response.
Creo Simulate also automatically calculates all measures valid for a static analysis.
You need one constrained modal analysis before defining a dynamic shock analysis.
