Node Result/Element Result(Truss, Beam, Plane Stress/Strain, Solid)/Element Result(Plate)/Nonlinear Link Result

Select an entity for which the time history analysis results will be produced. Node or Truss, Beam, Plane Stress/Strain, Solid, Plate or Nonlinear Link can be selected.


Result Type Selection

Select a type of time history analysis results to be produced. Nodal displacement (velocity & acceleration), forces/stresses of truss/beam elements, and deformations and forces of nonlinear link elements may be produced.


Output Type Selection

Specify the output method of the analysis results.

Time Step : Total time history analysis results with maximum/minimum values.

Maximum & Minimum : Maximum/minimum values only.


Output Time Step

Specify the time range and interval for which the time history analysis results are to be produced.


Node(Element) Selection

Select an entity for which the time history analysis results will be produced.

User Input : Enter the node (element) numbers.

Selected Nodes(Elements) in View : Use the nodes (elements) selected in the model window.

In the case of nonlinear link elements, select from the list the element numbers for which the results are required. In order to help select the element numbers, the elements' start and end node numbers are indicated in the brackets.


Reference Point

Select a reference point for displacement (velocity & acceleration) when Node Result is selected.

Ground : Select the ground as the reference point.

Add Ground Motion : The reference point is set to the ground prior to the movement of the ground.

Another Node : Select another node as the reference point.


Time History Case

Select a time history load case for which the time history analysis results are to be produced.
