How to import time dependent load in explicit dynamic

    • Alessio Zollo

      Hi, i have to import text files on explicit dynamic in workbench contening values of component forces and coordinates of nodes where forces have to be applied (one file for each time load step). I also have to impose a pre-stress to the structure deriving from the results of a preliminary static analisys. When i enter in explicit dynamic, the imported load file buttom disappears so i can't use external data tool for importing text files. Can someone help me?

      Hi Alessio,


      Can you try using an External Data module and then link the same to the Explicit Dynamics system? Also, try converting the force data to pressure one, because Explicit allows to import pressure load as Imported Load type:
