Converting a Static Study to a New Study

You can copy a static study to a new linear dynamic study or nonlinear study. Only supported boundary conditions are transferred to the new study.

To convert a Static study to a new study:

  1. In a static study tree, right-click the top icon, and click Copy Study.
  2. Under Source Study, select the source static study to copy to a new target study.
  3. Under Study name, type the name of the new study.
  4. Under Configuration to use, select the configuration linked to the target study.
  5. Under Target Study, select one of the available study types Static, Nonlinear, or Linear Dynamic.
  6. Click .
    All admissible loads and boundary conditions are copied to the new target study. The program issues warning messages when features of the source static study, such as connectors and loads, are not transferred to the target study due to limitations.
    You may still need to define time or frequency dependent loads for the target study to run the analysis.
