Connecting Static Load Cases with Time Diagrams for Time History Analysis
Tips & Tricks
In RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations, you combine static load cases with time diagrams to define the type of excitation of your structure. This way it is possible to use not only nodal loads, you can also use line or surface, free or generated loads in the time history analysis.
The time diagrams can be defined as tabulated values of time steps, as periodic defining the excitation frequency and shift, or using a function term. In all cases you provide a multiplier k, which is multiplied with the static load of the assigned load case.
