I/O Options and Subcase Information Entry The TTERM command can be used to define the termination time.


TTERM = value


Argument Description
value Termination time for Nonlinear Explicit Analysis (NLEXPL) or Explicit Dynamic Analysis (EXPDYN) subcase.

Default = 1.0 (Real)


  1. TTERM is only allowed in Nonlinear Explicit Analysis (NLEXPL) and Explicit Dynamic Analysis subcases which are defined by an ANALYSIS= EXPDYN or ANALYSIS= EXPDYN subcase entries.
  2. Nonlinear Explicit Analysis (NLEXPL) is the OptiStruct Explicit solution, and Explicit Dynamic Analysis (EXPDYN) is the Explicit solution based on OptiStruct-Radioss Integration (Bulk to Block translation).
