Function Curves

Function curves define pairs of values for use by different types of studies. The Function Curves dialog lets you create and edit Simulation curve libraries.

We recommend that you use this dialog to include all your frequently used curves to a library so that you can use then conveniently in other studies and documents.
Time Curve Defines variation with time for nonlinear, linear dynamic and transient thermal studies.
Temperature Curve Defines variation with temperature for structural and thermal studies.
S-N Curve Defines fatigue properties of materials used in static studies referenced by a fatigue study.
Load History Curve Defines a variable amplitude fatigue event for a fatigue study.
Frequency Curve Defines variation with frequency for harmonic and random vibration linear dynamic studies.
Harmonic Loading Curve Defines a harmonic load as a sum of sine and cosine functions for modal time history dynamic studies.
