Where do I Start When Performing a Dynamic Analysis?

Search for the following in the online help for further information:

  • "Transient Dynamic Analysis"
  • "2.4 Linear Step By Step Dynamics" in Theory Manual Volume 1
  • "2.5 Nonlinear Dynamics" in Theory Manual Volume 1

For reference material, we would recommend a book by Klaus-Jurgen Bathe a link to which may be found here.
