Thank you for replying.

I have read the document you are talking about. The significance of the "Loading scale factor" is well understood in case of a constant amplitude loading. But I don't understand the significance of the that factor in case of History Loading (like the one in the .dat file I have attached). For that particular loading the factor is taken as 0.005.

My question is if I have any other random load history file, how I am going define or calculate that factor? What is the impact of that factor on my results?

I have also attached the image where I have found the example I am talking about (Point No 34).
