Non-linear Static Load Case

 

A static non linear load case (NL) is automatically generated at the creation of the non-linear static analysis family. A non-linear static analysis family may contain several cases. The parameters of a static non linear load case are defined in the properties window.

Settings

1. Calculation controlled by: selects how the calculation is controlled

2. Reference: opens the Non Linear Analysis Options dialog box which allows you to select and configure the static cases used as a reference for the non-linear analysis.

3. Large displacements: enable the calculation of large displacements, when the displacements/rotations of the studied structure elements are large. For structures containing cable elements, this option is mandatory.
