Engine Keyword Only small displacement effects will be considered with this option.




  1. This option has been implemented for the applications where the large displacement effects are negligible. As most of the computation has been carried out in the initial configuration with the linear elements (if no material and other geometrical nonlinearities), the convergence is much easier; therefore, good performance may be obtained.

    This option could also be used as a preliminary analysis or for model checking.

  2. This option is not compatible with /IMPL/SPRING/LINEAR and /IMPL/DT/3.
