Apply pressure for certain time


How do I apply pressure for 5 minutes in a static structural

Hi @naveen_kumar and thanks for reaching out to us!

The first option would be to define your load with a time-dependancy (for instance 5000*t) and let the simulation interval be 5 seconds and the initial time step length 0.5 seconds if you like. But please be aware that the simulation time is something like a “pseudo-time” to show you what would happen to the component if we would move it slowly (“quasi static”). If you want a “real” time-dependancy a dynamic simulation might be the best for you.

Another great post by my colleague @ahmedhussain18 that might help you: Table Upload CSV - Time Definition.

All the best!
