Time-history analysis first steps


Overview of the procedure for time-history analysis.




Model ID:

Time-history analysis may be initiated using the process which follows:

  1. Create the model and assign support conditions to restrained joints.

  2. Select Define > Functions > Time History to define a time-history function which characterizes load variation over time.

  3. Assign load conditions to the model through Assign > Joint Loads or Frame Loads.

  4. Define either a modal or direct-integration time-history load case through Define > Load Cases.

  5. To customize load application, enter, on the Load Case Data form under Load Applied, the following fields:

    • Load Type. Select the Load Pattern option.

    • Load Name. Select the Load Pattern to be applied.

    • Function. Select the time function which characterizes load variation in time.
