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 in tabular form with time steps, periodically using the excitation frequency, or as a function term. In all cases, a multiplier k is defined. This is multiplied by the load from the assigned load case.
