Setting up time-history analysis involves the following steps:

  • Develop the model, including geometry and support conditions.
  • Define (via "Define > Functions > Time History") a time-history function or functions that will describe the variation of loads in time.
  • Assign loads (via "Assign > Joint Loads (or Frame Loads, etc.) to the model.
  • Define the time-history load case via "Define > Load Cases". The time-history type can be either Modal or Direct Integration - please see [CSI Analysis Reference Manual] for detailed explanation. To apply custom loads, make the following entries to the Load Applied section of the Load Case Data form:
    • Load Type column: select option "Load Pattern
    • Load Name column: select the desired load pattern name
    • Function: select the time function that defines the desired variation of the load pattern in time
