DELAY

Bulk Data Entry Defines the time delay term $\tau$ in the equations of the dynamic loading function. DELAY is used in conjunction with RLOAD1, RLOAD2, TLOAD1, and TLOAD2 entries.

Definitions

Field Contents SI Unit Example
SID Identification number.

No default (Integer > 0)

P1, P2 Grid or scalar point identification number.

No default (Integer > 0)

C1, C2 Component number.

No default (Integer 1 through 6, or 0 for scalar points)

T1, T2 Time delay term, $\tau$ , for designated point and component.

No default (Real)

2. SID must also be specified on a RLOAD1, RLOAD2, TLOAD1, or TLOAD2 entry. See those entry descriptions for the formulae that define the manner in which the time delay term, $\tau$ , is used.
