Time Sequence Data

Two per each time sequence. N=1, NUMSEQ

1-5    Time sequence number(N). Use any order

6-10 		Number of time steps (NSTEP(N))

11-15 		Kinematic print increment (NDPRT(N))

16-20 		Stress/Strain print increment (NSPRT(N))

21-25 		Time history plot increment (NHPLT(N))

26-30 		Number of iterations per time step (NITER(N))

31-35 		Coordinate update flag (ICUPD(N)):

EQ.0, Do not update the coordinate

EQ.1, Update the coordinate after each iteration

EQ.2, Update the coordinate after each time step

36-40 		LHS formulation increment, default is 1 (NLHS(N))

1-10 		First integration parameter (ALPHA(N))

11-20 		Second integration parameter (BETA(N))

21-30 		Third integration parameter (GAMMA(N))

31-40 		Time step (DT(N))

41-50 		Tolerance  (TOL(N)) 

GT.0.0, Absolute tolerance 

LT.0.0, Relative to load increment

51-60 		Deformations and stresses scale factor  (SCL(N)) 

GT.0.0, Size of maximum value 

EQ.0.0, Disable postprocessing 

LT.0.0, Scale factor
It should be noted that in case of large rotation analysis when the coordinate update flag is on. The program evaluates the body forces once at the beginning rather than updating the evaluation using elements deformed geometry.
