How do i plot the acceleration time history?

Post by MSI »

Q: I want to plot the acceleration time history data from one of my runs. Could tell me where to find it ?

A: The following are online versions of the Help files
Please also note these are on your computer thru the Help menu and the ? icon in McHenry 3D Graphics.
Start here: Also be sure to run the simulation with 0.001 seconds OUTPUT INCREMENTS during the collision so you get the acceleration detail
This is easily accomplished with Here is a sample output time increment change
