two-stage simulation

Hey Community,

 

i want to perform a two-stage simulation. The results of the first stage (deformations) should serve as the starting point of the second simulation with other loads. Subcases do not seem to be the right choice for my problem. I would be grateful for any help.

 

best regards

What solution sequence? In a linear solution (i.e. SOL 101), subcases are independent. In a nonlinear solution (i.e. SOL 106, 401, 402), subcases are, by default, path dependent - subcase n starts at the model state at the end of subcase n-1.
