hope I am able to describe my problem in english...

i want to simulate Inertial - acceleration like the following picture.

But I can only simulate linear accelerations steps.

Is it possible to simulate like the picture?

Thanks a lot

Hi Mavo,

Perhaps stepped load is what you're after.

Kind regards,

 Hey Mavo,

Why do you care how the acceleration changes from Step 1 to Step 2?

In a Static Structural analysis, it often doesn't matter that the solver ramps the acceleration from one level to another.

Or are you doing a Transient Structural model?  Please describe the goal of your analysis.
