Question about displacement

Hi, I have a very stupid question about Nastran structural analysis.

 

I have one solution with multiple subcases. Is the displacement obtained from each subcase relative to the original mesh's coordinates? Or relative to the previous subcase's final coordinates?

 

Thanks!!!

Elaine,

 

Displacements are total values (relative to the undeformed mesh).
