Graph Time Queries

To graph data for dynamic time query points:

  1. Select Graph Time Queries Graph Time Queries icon from the Graph menu.
  2. Use the mouse to select time query points. You can select one or more points, and you can select Solid or Liner time query points. When finished selecting press Enter or right-click and select Graph Selected. You will see the Graph Time Query Data dialog.
  3. In the dialog, choose the data you wish to plot on the vertical axis (e.g. X displacement, X velocity) and the horizontal axis. Use the Stages to Plot checkboxes to plot data for the desired stages.
  4. Select the Plot button and the time query graph will be generated for all selected query points and stages.

NOTE: after a graph is generated, many options are available in the right-click menu or the Chart menu for customizing the graph display, exporting data, etc.

Liner Time Query Points

Note that you can select Solid Time Query points or Liner Time Query points with the Graph Time Queries option. The only difference is that for Liner Time Query points, additional data types will be available for plotting (e.g. Rotational data).

Right Click Shortcut

To graph data for a single time query point, you can right click on a query point and select Graph Time Query Data from the popup menu. This shortcut can only be used to plot data for a single point, to plot data for multiple points on the same graph you must use the Graph Time Queries menu option as described above.

Dynamic history (stress and strain)

Some new data for dynamic history (stress and strain) is available. Here are the example format of the output:

  • X-disp
  • Y-disp
  • X-vel
  • Y-vel
  • X-acc
  • Y-acc
  • Rz-disp
  • Rz-vel
  • Rz -acc
  • PP
  • SXX
  • SYY
  • SXY
  • SZZ
  • EXX
  • EYY
  • EXY

Stress Plotting for Dynamic Time Query

Stress plotting for Dynamic Time Query is split into:

  • Total Stress
  • Effective Stress

Graph Time Query Data

The program computes either Effective or Total stress according to the project settings indicated in the Stress Analysis tab.

Project Settings dialog- Stress Analysis tab


To calculate Total Stress, given Effective Stress:

Total Stress = Effective Stress + Pore Pressure


To calculate Effective Stress given Total Stress:

Effective Stress = Total Stress - Pore Pressure
