RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations | Calculation
The time history analysis is performed with the modal analysis or the linear implicit Newmark analysis. The time history analysis in this add‑on module is restricted to linear systems. Although the modal analysis represents a fast algorithm, it is necessary to use a certain number of eigenvalues to ensure the required accuracy of results.
The implicit Newmark analysis is a very precise method, independent of the number of eigenvalues used, but requires sufficient small time steps for calculation. For the response spectra analysis, equivalent static loads are calculated internally. A linear static analysis is performed subsequently.
