Apply Inertial force generated from earthquake response spectrum analysis

    • wangx3

      Dear all

      After the earthquake RSA, we can get the acceleration on the nodes. Can we use the acceleration data to do the push over-analysis? Simply saying, would it be possible that the workbench to generate the equivalent inertial forces on each element node using the accelerations? After that, we can do the nonlinear structural analysis? thank you!

      You can use command objects to apply acceleration data to the elements. Please see if the following links help you:
