Quantity—Dynamic Analyses

In defining the quantity of the measure, you indicate the type of information you want Creo Simulate to measure. Although Creo Simulate provides a full list of quantities for you to choose from, you should limit your selection to the following quantities for dynamic analyses:

• Stress—enables you to measure a variety of stress types in your model.

• Strain—enables you to measure a variety of strain types in your model.

• Displacement—enables you to measure displacement for your model in terms of magnitude or component direction.

• Failure Index—enables you to determine whether a material has failed because of an applied load.

• Force—enables you to measure the spring force.

• Moment—enables you to measure the spring moment.

• Velocity—enables you to measure velocity in terms of magnitude or component direction.

• Acceleration—enables you to measure acceleration in terms of magnitude or component direction.

• Rotation—enables you to measure model rotation in terms of magnitude or component direction.

• Rotational Velocity—enables you to measure rotational velocity in terms of magnitude or component direction.

• Rotational Acceleration—enables you to measure rotational acceleration in terms of magnitude or component direction.

• Phase—enables you to measure the phase for any of the following quantities: displacement, velocity, acceleration, rotation, rotational velocity, or rotational acceleration. Only dynamic frequency analyses calculate phase measures.

• Driven Parameter—enables you to tie a measure to a dependent Creo Parametric parameter. For information on this quantity, see Parameter-Based Measures.

• Time—enables you to determine the time of first or last occurrence of a measure's value being greater or less than a specified value during a dynamic time analysis.

• Computed Measure—enables you to define your own algebraic expression for the measure.

For dynamic analyses, do not select Reaction, Center of Mass, or Moment of Inertia. These quantities apply to basic analyses only. For information on how to use these quantities in basic analyses, see Quantity—Basic Analyses.
