Analysis Support

MotionSolve supports DSA only for Kinematic, Static, and Quasi-static analyses

At this time, DSA for Dynamic analysis is only supported via finite differencing, dsa=”FD” and dsa=” FD_SERIAL”.

DSA for Linear analyses is not supported.

Note: To compute the sensitivities, MotionSolve requires the design variables, how the model is parameterized with these design variables, and what the response variables are. DSA yields correct answers only when the model is designable. For non-designable models, it returns ZERO as the answer.
