Hello everyone..! I am a beginner i

Hello everyone..! I am a beginner i

Hello everyone..! I am a beginner in ANSYS. I am using ANSYS v14.0. I want to perform a time history analysis for a soil-structure model. Is it possible to apply the acceleration time history file directly in this version ? and if yes, can anyone kindly suggest me the step wise procedure for this ?

My acceleration time history file is a notepad text file and has around 100 rows and 6 columns, each value is the acceleration at an interval of 0.02 seconds. will this file directly work as the input or will i have to prepare a separate table ? Please help.

I have come to know that in the earlier versions, only displacement time history can be inputted. But for that also i donot know the procedure.

Thanking you all,
