  2. In the graphics area, select a component on which to perform the stress analysis.
    The component is listed under Selection in the PropertyManager.
  3. Enter the Start Time and End Time for the analysis.
    • To enter an isolated time value, enter the same value for Start Time and End Time.
    • You can also select time values from the MotionManager timeline.
  4. Click Add Time.
    The time range is listed in the PropertyManager.
  5. Repeat Steps 3 - 4 to compute stress analysis on other time intervals.
    Click Advanced to modify the mesh density used in the stress analysis calculation for the selected part.
  6. Do one:
    • Click OK to close the PropertyManager
    • Click Keep Visible before clicking OK to set up stress analysis for other components.
