Harmonic Load

Hi!

1.-Is it possible to get the speed of the nodes in a harmonic load calculation?.
This is possible in the time histori analysis, but for the harmonic analysis this option remains off.

2.-How I can combine the charges if I have a Time Historty Analisys?
Example:     1: Dead weight
2: Weight Machine
3: Maintenance Charge
4: Dynamic loading machine (Time History Analysis)

Thank you for all

It is not directly output in results of harmonic analysis but amplitudes of speed in harmonic analysis can be obtained from aplitudes of displacements (displayed in for instance Displacements table) . It is resulting from the first derivative of sinusoidal function. It is enough to multiply displacements by 2*Pi*f where f is the frequency of excitation.

Analogously amplitudes of acceleration can be obtained multiplying displacements by (2*Pi*f)^2

2.-How I can combine the charges if I have a Time Historty Analisys?

First converting selected time steps of time history case into simple load cases and then combining them with other cases in combinations:
