Multiple Load Steps in Discovery Live

      Is it possible to use multiple load steps in Discovery Live REFINE?

      I need to simulate a flange, first load step applying a Bolt Preload and second load step "Locking" the Bolt and applying internal pressure?

      Thanks

      Hello Michele Camposaragna

      Are you referring to Discovery refine mode?

      Multistep runs are not yet possible in Discovery. Though Discovery automatically runs a two-load step solution when pretension bolts are included in the model. The first load step applies the pretension, the second load step locks the bolt and applies the other structural loads. I am aware that this is not mentioned properly in the documentation, and I have already raised that up to the concerned team. 

      Regards.
