New Release Q4-2010:
Most structures behave linearly during their operational service events. The loading is usually a complex combination of individual loading events. WST/QSE© allows the analyst to understand the time varying nature of the responses to known loading histories. This is the analytical equivalent of a multi-DOF laboratory test. WST/QSE© has tools to rapidly plot nodal and elemental functions and the ability to create full field results in a new ODB. No additional decompositions of the stiffness matrix is required. Only an existing ODB and a CAE file to hold amplitude functions for input and optionally store output functions. Utilities to generate standard function types like Sine Sweep, Random, Square Wave and Saw Wave are supplied.
Linear Superposition of ODB Steps via scaling functions to create interactive output for:
- Nodal Functions
- Elemental Functions
- Full Field Results
