So I am doing a static(quasi-static) analysis and I want to apply the load in my model on a set of nodes in form of displacements that gradually increase with each load step, like a ramp. It means I want to start from u_x=0 at these nodes and apply an additional amount of delta_u_x in each load step until I reach the ultimate value for it.
Like: Start: u_x=0
Go up in a ramp of 10 load steps, in each increment add 1 unit to u_x
Please could you let me know how I should do this.
Thanks a lot.
