Dynamic Time Analysis Overview
You can use a dynamic time analysis to examine the system’s transient response to time-varying loads. The load input takes the form of a time history.
In a dynamic time analysis, Creo Simulate calculates displacements, velocities, accelerations, and stresses in your model at different times in response to a time varying load. Use dynamic time analyses if you are interested in transient or non-steady forced response.
For base excitation only, you can direct Creo Simulate to calculate the modal mass participation factors to enable you to better assess the accuracy of your results. Creo Simulate also calculates all valid measures for dynamic time analyses that you have defined for the model.
You can direct Creo Simulate to report full results at specified time intervals. For dynamic time analysis with full results, you can animate results of a fringed display for each time interval of your analysis.
